One Dish Baked Wild Cod in Puttanesca Blanc 
Today's recipe is from guest blogger Kyle Klim, DC, BS from Integrative Wellness Group

Simple ingredients with amazing flavor.  This easy fish recipe is a great break from the usual menu.  A great way to add Omega 3's and other mood-improving nutrients.

Ingredients:
  • Two to three 8 ounce filets of wild cod
  • ¼ onion, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 8 ounces pitted Kalamata olives
  • 3 ounces organic jarred capers 
  • 10 organic cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup white wine (optional)
  • 1 Tblsp Kerrygold butter
  • 3 Tblsp chopped parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Equipment:
1 large terra cotta pot or glass pyrex casserole dish

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. While oven is preheating, roughly chop onion and garlic, then add to dish with butter. Place in oven to begin to cook. Allow to cook for about five minutes. While that is happening, season cod filets with salt and pepper. Remove dish from oven, then place cod on top of onion and garlic mixture. Pour in broth, wine if desired, olives, tomatoes, and capers. Cook for another 15 minutes, or until filets are firm to the touch. Finish with butter and parsley and serve! If you would like some greens as a side dish, you can easily add them to the dish while cooking, and they will wilt into the sauce. Spinach would work great for that.
