Friday Night Lite

An easy after work stew. . . very tasty on this rainy Friday!  The recipe was inspired by Alison and Jeff Nathan's "Sea Bass Nicoise".  Here's my version:

Wild Cod Stew
(Serves 2)

1 tsp. Olive Oil
1 Garlic Clove, diced
1/3 cup Fennel Bulb, sliced
1 Mini Green Pepper, diced
Saute vegetables in olive oil a few minutes.  Add:

2 Small Yukon Potatoes, peeled and diced 
3/4 cup Low Sodium Vegetable Broth
2 Tbsp. Apple Juice
1/2 tsp. Lemon Zest
Small Pinch Saffron Threads
1/2 tsp. Fennel Seed
1/4 tsp. Mrs. Dash
Simmer to cook potatoes.  Add:

1 Wild Cod Fillet, cut in bite size pieces
1 cup Diced Tomatoes in Juice, no added salt
1/4 cup Fresh Herbs
5 Kalamata Olives, diced
Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

I found the Saffron Threads at TJ Max for an affordable price.  The pepper and herbs are from my container garden.  The fennel and Potatoes are from the local Farmer's Market.  Have a great weekend!
