1 – Cook jasmine rice according to package instructions for microwaving. Brands differ. When finished, keep covered to preserve warmth.
2 – Place cauliflower, green peas, capers, green onions, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil in a large covered baking dish. Add one-half cup water. Stir gently but well. Microwave on high for 5 minutes.
3 – Place the cod on top of the vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, olive oil, and parsley. Microwave on high for 8 minutes. Cod is done when it begins to break apart.
4 – Serve the cod and vegetables hot, atop the jasmine rice.
