How to Make Poached Cod with Tomato & Saffron


  • 1Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and pepper and cook, stirring often, until fragrant (garlic should not take on any color),about 3 minutes.
    Add tomatoes, crushing with your hands as you add them, wine, bay leaves, saffron, and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until flavors meld, 5–7 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
    Reduce heat to medium-low; season cod with salt and pepper and place in skillet. Cover and cook at a bare simmer until cod is opaque throughout and beginning to flake, 5–7 minutes (thicker pieces will take longer to cook).
