Roasted cod with chickpea purée and asparagus. 3/12/19

This morning we went to Whole Foods where there was a sale on fresh Atlantic cod for $8.95 a pound. Combine that with the Amazon discount and we bought enough cod for dinner plus 2 bananas for $7.95.  What a deal!

John marinates the fish in some lemon zest, olive oil, bay leaves, rosemary, salt, paprika, and garlic powder for about a half an hour and then bakes it to perfect doneness in about 12 minutes in a 400F oven.

Baked cod with chickpea purée and asparagus

I make some chickpea purée by whizzing up a can of chickpeas (rinsed and drained) with a little olive oil, lemon juice, water, garlic, salt and pepper. The purée is then warmed up (no boiling!) on a low flame.

In another buy of the week asparagus is $1.99 so I buy a bundle and use half tonight and save half for our steak dinner over the weekend. I cut it up so it looks like more and steam it quickly.

This dinner is elegant enough for company but is quick enough to prepare for a weeknight dinner!
