When it comes to manly sports and outings, there’s nothing like spending time with the guys on a fishing trip.  But what do you do if your special guy doesn’t know how to cook up his speical prize?  Why not let him know that you think he’s quite a catch by whipping up this quick and delicious fish dish?!

Life is sweet, so eat well and enjoy!

Chef Arturo Vargas



• 3 Tbsp. olive oil
• 1 cup diced red onions
• 1 cup white wine or lemon juice instead
• kosher salt and black pepper
• 1 lb. cod fillets (red snapper optional)
• 1 cup Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
• 1 Tbsp. melted butter
• 1 tsp. fresh minced garlic
• 1 cup shredded cheese

Method of preparation:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Heat olive oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium heat.
Add onions. Cook – stirring frequently – until onions are soft, 6-7 minutes.
Stir in wine and season with kosher salt and black pepper. Let the mixture cook 5-6 minutes, then remove from heat.
Place cod fillets on top of the onions and season with salt and pepper
Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the cod fish.
Cover with foil, and bake 10 minutes. Remove foil and bake until the fish is brown and flakes easily with a fork – about 5-10 minutes. (The baking time depends on how thick the cod fillets are. The thicker the fillets, the longer the fish will need to cook. Check at 5 minutes.)
