Sometimes life is… positively hectic. Desperate even.  As in, my youngest and I had the flu last week (yes we both had flu shots) and lost sooo much working time.  Of course, this happened right at mid-semester where we were both already behind in school.

Then while we convalesced, I relied far too much on canned chicken soup which now feels seriously old.  Which means I needed to find a few easy shortcut meals that are… Absolutely. Delicious. 

And did I mention nutritious?

Served!

You see, one of my big worries during recuperation is continuing to get our five servings a day of fruit and vegetables.  No sense challenging the body with nasty viruses AND poor nutrition. So for this recipe I threw caution to the wind and tossed a couple vegetables into a pan with some cod from the freezer (from our Community Supported Fishery) and put it in the oven.  Fingers crossed.  

The results were (drum roll…) delicious.  Whew!

Because I wanted everything super easy, I decided to base the dish on a jar of marinated roasted red peppers.  The marinate mixture had olive oil, lemon, onion and garlic which were five things (including the peppers) that I wouldn’t need to slice or measure.

Pour jarred marinated peppers over cod and asparagus

I rinsed and broke up some asparagus I had in the refrigerator, topped that with a piece of cod, then poured the jar of peppers, liquid and all over everything.  Since I happened to have fresh thyme, a little of that went on too with salt and pepper.

Add thyme, then bake

Then everything went into the oven for about 15 minutes.  Served with bakery bread and a pre-washed salad, I had a meal with almost no effort.   

At this point I am hoping for an really uneventful next few weeks.  But Baked Cod with Jarred Peppers and Asparagus is a keeper, desperately busy or not!
