–cod (size of 3 decks of cards, one-half pound)
–avocado (1, medium)
–black olives (sliced, 1 small can)
–cilantro (fresh if possible)
–carrots (miniature, one-half package)
–salt and pepper
1 – Open the avocado and remove the pit. Slice into one-half inch pieces. Place in a small bowl. Empty a can of black olives into the bowl. Season with lime juice, cilantro, and olive oil. Fold over gently. (This will be a cold relish.)
2 – Place the cod in a covered baking dish with a little water. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Microwave on high for 6 minutes. When finished, test the cod to be sure that it is done. Cod is done when it breaks apart easily.
3 – Place the carrots in a covered baking dish with a little water. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Microwave for 5 minutes, until very, very tender. Empty, with the liquid, into a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Then pour into serving bowl.
4 – Serve the cod with the avocado and black olives as a relish on top. The carrots are a side.
