Baked Cod with Orange, Tomato & Kalamata Olive Sauce

This week’s Catch of the Week, for January 23 – 29, comes from the chilly waters of Iceland. Despite cold origins, these premium cod fillets are only available fresh at Sendik’s and were never frozen. It’s how we ensure this white, mild flavored fish tastes great any way you choose to cook it.

The low-calorie, high-protein fish is a favorite of the classic Wisconsin fish fry, but healthier preparations include baking or broiling. It also contains many minerals and vitamins, including a healthy dose of B6 and B12.
