Note: Despite the hot spice, this is a delicately flavored dish.
–cod (size of 4 decks of cards, 1 pound)
–parsley (fresh, 1 handful, chopped)
–banana pepper (fresh, one-half, sliced)
–cayenne pepper (bottled, one-quarter teaspoon, more to taste)
–minced garlic (bottled, 1 tablespoon)
–green onions (2 stalks, chopped)
–white wine (one-quarter cup)
–lemon juice (3 squirts, bottled)
–salt and pepper
1 – Place the cod in a covered baking dish. Add the white wine. Drench in lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, minced garlic, and olive oil. Sprinkle with banana pepper, parsley, and green onions. Finish with a drop or two more of olive oil.
2 – Microwave on high for 8 minutes. Cod is done when it begins to break apart.
3 – Serve the cod and sauce hot.
