Ginger Cod with Zucchini Ribbon Salad


So much easier to make meals when everything is a 3 minute walk from the house and my favorite Cafe is on the way.


Really, I will cry when I have to go back to Stuttgart!  But right now I’m laughing everyday and, I guess that’s what counts 🙂


Ginger Cod with Zucchini Ribbon Salad

1 fillet of cod, cut into serving size pieces

Salt and pepper

Ginger powder

2 tbsp olive oil

2 zucchini, cut into ribbons

1/4 each, yellow and orange bell peppers, cut into thin strips

1 tsp fresh ginger, grated

1/4 cup rice vinegar

1 tbsp soy sauce

Juice 1/2 lemon

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp sesame oil

Season the cod pieces with salt, pepper and the ginger powder and set aside.

Steam the zucchini and peppers for 3 minutes, rinse with cold water, drain and pat dry, then place in a mixing bowl.

Whisk together the fresh ginger, vinegar, soy sauce, lemon juice, honey and sesame oil, then pour over the zucchini and peppers, blending well.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Fry the cod in the olive oil until cooked and serve with the zucchini salad.

Wine suggestion:  Bourgogne Aligote

    That sounds good – I hadn’t thought of cod with ginger before 😉

  2. Thank you Mad. I was just going to season it with salt and pepper but I had an Asian thing going with the salad 🙂

  3. Ach komm’ doch, Stuttgart ist auch nicht schlecht! 🙂

  4. I’ll have to make your cod! It is my favorite fish and I love the idea of ginger with cod. Plus, the zucchini ribbons (looks like yellow squash too?) are fabulous. 🙂

  5. This looks really yummy! Do you just use a regular vegetable peeler to make the ribbons?

  6. Why did I look at this before lunch? Now I am hungry! 🙂

    This is gorgeous! So simple yet flavorful. I’m glad I read the comments because I was going to ask how to cut the veggies into ribbons. I’m definitely going to do that. It makes it so much more elegant than giant chunks. Fish is best when its natural flavor is barely tampered with. Good job!

  14. Conor Bofin says:

    The cod looks just perfect. I’ll bet the dish was delicious and light.
    Damn Stuttgart.

  15. This looks delightful! But I’m unfortunately allergic to soy, so I can’t use soy sauce. Would there be other great substitutes to mimic that flavor?
