Cod with Creamy Nut Sauce

  • FAST
  1. 2 slices peasant bread (2 ounces), crusts removed, bread diced
  2. 1/2 cup water
  3. 1/3 cup whole almonds
  4. 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  5. 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  6. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  7. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  8. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  9. Four 6-ounce cod fillets
  10. 1 small lemon, sliced paper thin
  1. Soak the bread in the water, then squeeze dry; reserve 1/4 cup of the water.
  2. In a mini food processor, grind the almonds to a powder. Add the soaked bread, reserved water, vinegar, garlic and 1/4 cup of olive oil and process to a thick sauce. Scrape into a bowl, stir in the parsley and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat the broiler. On a broiler pan, brush the cod fillets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange a few lemon slices on each fillet and broil for 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned and just cooked through. Transfer the fillets to plates, top each with 2 tablespoons of the sauce and serve.
