This simple dish is inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, even though cod hasn't got much to do with that part of the region. But after having it with some nice wine of your choice, you will easily imagine yourself on a sunny terrace by the sea.

Cod alla Mediterranean

Ingredients (for 2 people):

  • 300 g fresh cod
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 red paprika (aka bell pepper)
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 shallots 
  • 1 clove of garlic 
  • olive oil
  • pepper
  • salt
  • Vegeta
  • red paprika powder
  • cumin powder
  • dried parsley
  • dried basil
  • dried sage

Heat the oven at 180 degrees. Then cut the vegetables (in cubes or slices). Put cut onion and garlic on the baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Add the rest of the vegetables, add more olive oil and season with pepper, salt, Vegeta (Croatian super spice that is essentially dried veggie soup), cumin powder and dried basil, parsley and sage.

Put the cod on top of the vegetables (don't mix) and add more olive oil, salt, pepper, Vegeta and red paprika (yes, we like our olive oil).

Bake 20 minutes at 180 degrees and serve hot with a wine of your choice.
