Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes

1/4 cup dried tart cherries
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons toasted pine nuts
4 Alaska Cod fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
Salt and pepper, to taste


Combine dried fruit, onion, and balsamic vinegar in a small microwaveable bowl.  Cover and microwave on medium setting for 1 minute.  Remove from microwave and stir in pine nuts; let sit, covered, while fish is cooking.

Fill a 12-inch skillet with water to a depth of 1-inch and bring to a boil.  Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod under cold water; place fillets in steamer basket.  Season with salt and pepper.

Turn off heat.  Place steamer basket into skillet; return liquid to a boil.  Cover loosely and cook 5 to 7 minutes for frozen cod or 4 to 5 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.  Remove fillets to serving plates; top with fruit.

Cook’s Tip: This recipe works with any dried fruit – use your favorite!  Delicious with either a spinach salad or couscous!
