Pan seared cod in homemade white wine tomato basil sauce with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli

Ingredients:

For the fish:

  1. Fresh cod
  2. Cherry Tomatos
  3. Fresh Basil Leaves
  4. Shallots
  5. Garlic
  6. White win ( I used Pinot Griot)
  7. Sugar
  8. Lemon Juice
  9. Fresh lemon lemon zest

Mashed Potatoes:

  1. Idaho potatoes
  2. Carnation milk
  3. garlic powder
  4. salt
  5. fresh ground pepper

Directions:

Salute the shallots in garlic in a pin over light to medium heat. Cook until the shallots are a translucent color.  Slice cherry tomatos in halves then add in mixture of shallots and garlic. Pour in the lemon juice and lemon zest. Now mix in the fresh basil leaves. Lastly, stir in the white win. Add in sugar to dilute the lemony basil taste and give the sauce a sweeter flavor.  Remove sauce from pan and set aside.  Sear the cod for 5 minutes on each side then put in the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Pour the sauce mixture all over the cod and enjoy!

Boil potatoes until they are tender. Drain the water and leave the potatoes in the pot. Add in the butter and the carnation milk and begin mashing the potatoes. I usually leave the skin on. Once the potatoes are based season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper.
