BREADCRUMB – TOPPED COD IN WHITE WINE & SERVED WITH CREAMY SAUCE OF CRAB MEAT – PARSLEY – MINT – CAPERS – LEMON – WHITE WINE – EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL ATOP JASMINE RICE

Note:  The original recipe for the sauce used tuna.

For 4:

–cod (size of 4 decks of cards, 1 pound)

–breadcrumbs (boxed)

–white wine

–olive oil

–jasmine rice (1 cup, packaged)

The sauce:

–crab meat (one-half small can, drained)

–parsley (fresh, 1 handful, chopped)

–mint (5 leaves, fresh, chopped, optional)

–capers (2 tablespoons, drained, bottled)

–lemon juice (bottled, 1 squirt)

–white wine (3 tablespoons)

–extra virgin olive oil (3 tablespoons)

1 – Place the cod in a covered baking dish with a little white wine.  Drench in olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle lightly with breadcrumbs.  Microwave on high for 8 and one-half minutes.  (Cod is done when it begins to break apart.)

2 – Place the following in a food processor:  one-half small can of drained crab meat; 1 chopped handful of fresh parsley, 5 chopped leaves of fresh mint (optional), 2 tablespoons of drained capers, 1 squirt of lemon juice, 3 tablespoons of white wine, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.  Puree until creamy; it takes some time to make a creamy sauce in a food processor.

3 – Serve the cod hot, with the sauce at room temperature and ladled over the top.  Place the cod on jasmine white rice (1 cup rice, 1 and three-fourth’s cup water, microwave on high for 5 minutes, then microwave on 50 percent power for 10 minutes).
