Cod Veracruz (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: A package of Van DeCamp frozen cod fillets, many years ago
Serves: 3 to 4

12-oz. cod fillets
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. olive oil
14-1/2 oz can stewed tomatoes
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
6 pitted green olives, cut in halves
1 tbsp. capers
1 tbsp. lemon or lime juice
1 tbsp. canned, diced green chilies

In a skillet, sauté onion and garlic until soft but not brown. Add tomatoes, herbs, salt and pepper. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Add remaining sauce ingredients.

Add fish fillets to sauce in skillet. Cover and simmer gently 15 minutes (if using frozen fillets), or about 7 minutes if fresh fillets, turning fish over halfway through cooking.

This is really good served with rice and some sliced avocado on the side.

Poster's Notes:
This recipe came inside a package of frozen cod fillets, I don't know how long ago. I think those packages are 12 oz. and the recipe says it serves 3, so that sounds right. It's stovetop cooking and very tasty.
