1 – Place 8 to 10 medium shrimp in a small covered baking dish. Add a very small amount of white wine, clam juice, Promise margarine, and olive oil. Season with salt, pepper, minced garlic, and Cajun seasoning. Set aside.
2 – Place the cod in a covered baking dish with a little white wine and clam juice. In a separate bowl, place 1 tablespoon of Promise margarine. Microwave the margarine for 10 seconds; then stir. Add 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. Pour the margarine and garlic on top of the cod. Chop the parsley, and drop on top. Add a few drops of olive oil. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. When finished, keep covered to preserve warmth.
3 – Microwave the shrimp for 2 minutes. When finished, pour the shrimp atop the cod.
4 – Serve the cod and shrimp hot, atop pasta, couscous, rice, or quinoa if desired.
