Lemon Ginger Fish

Makes: 4 servings
Prep 10 mins Cook 5 mins Microwave 2 mins
Lemon-Ginger Fish
  • 1  pound  fresh or frozen cod or other firm white fish
  • 2  small  lemons
  • 1  tablespoon  grated fresh ginger
  • 2  teaspoons  sugar
  • 1/4  cup  butter
  • 2 5  ounce bags  baby spinach
  • 2  tablespoons  water
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  ground black pepper

1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish into 4 pieces; set fish aside. Thinly slice one lemon; set aside. Finely shred peel from remaining lemon; juice the lemon. In a small bowl combine the lemon peel and juice, ginger, and sugar. Set aside.

2. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add fish to skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until browned. Turn fish and add lemon juice mixture. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. Using a slotted spatula, transfer fish to platter; cover to keep warm.

3. Add lemon slices to the skillet. Cook about 2 minutes or until lemon slices are softened and sauce is slightly thickened.

4. Meanwhile, place spinach in a very large, microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle with the water. Microwave on 100-percent power (high) about 2 minutes or just until wilted, tossing once after 1 minute.

5. To serve, divide spinach among four shallow serving bowls. Top with fish and sauce. Add lemon slices and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

From the Test KitchenOrange Pepper Salmon:
  • Prepare as directed, except substitute salmon for the cod and 2 small oranges for the lemons. Omit ginger; add 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper to the juice mixture.
