Thyme and Saffron Cod Fish

Saffron Cod Fish




Ηands on

Spiced Cod Fish has a prominent role in the cooking of Thessaloniki: Having been a cultural crossroad for centuries, this is a city of good-eaters where household recipes are never disappointing. We discovered this recipe thanks to the greek magazine Gastronomos, which often published stories on traditional greek cooking. 



Put the vinegar and 1 tsp salt in a large bowl. Marinate the fish for 1 hour. 


Rinse the fillets and pat dry with a clean towel. Use a spacious pan to heat the oil on medium heat. Add the garlic and turmeric, thyme and chili, half of the sliced tomatoes, half the parsley. Cook for 5 mins, then add the fillets and continue cooking for another 5 mins. 


Add the remaining tomatoes and parsley, the saffron and the white wine. Cover and let cook for 10 mins. Use a spatula to serve the fish and tomatoes on a plate. Simmer the sauce for a few more minutes, until thickened, then pour on top of the fish and serve. Enjoy!
