Joanne Weir is a culinary traveler with a fresh Cali cooking style, so it’s not surprising that seafood is a big part of her repertoire. In her most recent book Joanne Weir’s Cooking Confidence, she offers a variety of fishy recipes, including Sizzling Shrimp & Pimentón with Sherry, Prosciutto Wrapped Halibut, and (her favorite) Cod Braised with Leeks, Potatoes, and Thyme.
Joanne shares with us: “This is one of my absolute favorite kinds of meals. It was born of necessity on one of those nights where all of a sudden its dinnertime and I realize I haven’t given dinner a single thought all day.
On this occasion, I scoured the contents of my refrigerator and married some leeks, potatoes and thyme in a pot with chicken stock and white wine. The cod fillets I added turned out perfectly flaky. And just like that a simple and scrumptious new dish was created. On another day this dinner could have turned out quite differently, which really is the beauty of this one-pot wonder,”
This sounds like the perfect seafood dish for a cool night on the coast! But don’t take our word for it. Try out Joanne’s recipe for yourself…
