Cod in Red Wine

2 tb Olive oil
1 Onion; thinly sliced
1 Clove garlic; minced
1/2 c Red wine
1/2 c Fish stock or clam juice
1 tb Capers
1/2 ts Dried thyme
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 c Chopped parsley; packed
1/2 lb Cod; cut in 1" pieces
1 tb Butter; optional


Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add onion and garlic and begin to saute. Cover and cook until softened, about 5 minutes (if onions begin to stick add a spoonful of water to the skillet and continue to cook).

Add the red wine, clam juice, capers, and thyme and bring liquid to a boil. Simmer over low heat until reduced to 1/2 cup.

Right before serving bring the sauce back to a simmer and add the fish. Cover and cook over very low heat until the fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and swirl in butter and parsley (don't worry if fish falls apart).

Adjust seasoning and spoon in deep plates over rice, potatoes or garlic croutons.

Yield: 2 servings
