1 – Place the cod in a covered baking dish. Spoon white wine vinegar on top. Season with salt, pepper, basil leaves, and olive oil. Set aside.
2 – In a small mixing bowl, place marinara sauce, artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives, red bell pepper slices, minced garlic. Stir together gently. Then pour the sauce atop the cod. Finish with green onions and a few drops of extra virgin olive oil.
3 – Microwave on high for 7 minutes, longer (1 to 2 minutes more) if the cod is thick.
4 – Serve the cod and sauce hot.
