We gently steam the cod to fully retain its juiciness. Served with a rustic Mediterranean side dish.
For best results, place the sealed package in the refrigerator to thaw about half a day before your meal - overnight (or in the early morning) if you want it for lunch, in the morning if it’s for dinner. If your plans change, the chilled and still sealed package will last up to 3 days in the refrigerator.
If you’re in a hurry, just get the package from the freezer and hold it under warm water for a few minutes until partially thawed, then heat it for a little bit longer than usual.
Open and discard the package, place the fish in a pan and spread the veggies around it, and heat them (stove on low-medium heat, flip the fish once, stir the veggies occasionally, add a little water if needed). Alternatively, put them on a plate and reheat in the microwave (800W for 5 minutes).
Always adjust the salt level to your taste! A drizzle of olive oil is highly recommended, as is some fresh ground black pepper.
