Meatless Monday - Spicy Sweet Cod with Cabbage

This is the easiest recipe I have cooked so far. It will feed two people (as long as they're not teenage boys) with a generous salad or a bowl of soup.

You will need:
1/2 lb Fresh Cod Fillet (not frozen, it will go to mush)
8oz can of Pineapple Tidbits or Crushed Pineapple in its own juice (you will only use 4oz)
1/2 head white Cabbage (I used fresh from the garden)
Freshly chopped tomato
Cajun Seasoning
Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Heat oven to 425 deg F.
Spray a glass baking dish with Canola Oil

Place Cod in dish, cover with 1/2 the 8oz can Pineapple Tidbits and juice - no other juice/water is required. This dish makes it's own sauce.

Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning, cover tightly with foil and put dish on bottom rack of oven for 35 mins.

Quickly steam the cabbage in a little water, but don't let it go soft. Remove from heat when 'al dente.'

Drain cabbage juice and save for a soup base. Leftover cabbage can also be set aside for addition to a healthy soup. You could probably also use Iceberg Lettuce in place of Cabbage.

Put cabbage on plate, add Cod / Pineapple topping, add the chopped tomato and finish off with ground black pepper and a few dashes of either lime or lemon juice.

The mixture of textures along with the spicy sweet flavors is very light and enjoyable.

It's amazing. Hope you enjoy it too!
