Cod With Beans, Corn, and Pesto Recipe 2010-08-30 16:47:16

Ingredients

  1. 4 6-ounce pieces cod fillet (about 1 inch thick), skin removed
  2. kosher salt and pepper
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. 1/2 pound green beans, cut in half crosswise (about 2 1/2 cups)
  5. 1 leek (white and light green parts only), sliced into half-moons
  6. 2 ears corn, kernels cut off the cob (about 1 cup)
  7. 2 tablespoons store-bought pesto, plus more for serving

Directions

  1. Season the cod with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat the oil in a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook until the undersides are golden, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Flip the cod and scatter the green beans and leek around it. Add 1/4 cup water, cover, and cook until the vegetables are just tender and the fish is opaque throughout, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer the cod to plates. Stir the corn into the green beans, cover, and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the pesto and serve with the cod and additional pesto, if desired.

Serves 4.
