  • 1 tbsp ground coriander seed
  • 2 lg cloves garlic -- minced
  • 1 tsp kosher salt -- divided
  • 2 tbsp dijon style mustard -- * see note
  • 4 boneless fillets of Cod
  • 1 sm onion -- in chunks
  • 2 jalapeno chiles -- seeded & quartered
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil -- divided
  • 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
  • 1 cup swiss chard -- coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup spinach -- coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • Combine ground coriander seeds, garlic and salt in a small bowl. Wash fish well. Dry well with paper towels.

    Spread mustard on fish. Rub coriander-garlic mixture on fish. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

    In a food chopper of processor, place the onion and chiles. Process until minced finely.

    Heat 1 tbsp of oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add cumin seeds; cook for 10 seconds until fragrant. Add onion mixture to the cumin. Cook for 2 minutes or until brown. Stir in swiss chard and spinach. Cook for 2-3 minutes until they are wilted, stirring once in awhile. Transfer this mixture to food processor. Add lime and remaining 1/2 tsp salt. Pulse until pureed.

    Heat remaining oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add fish rub-side-down and cook for 2 minutes, turning once. Reduce heat to low; cover skillet. Cook for another 3 minutes until fish flakes easily.

    Spoon greens onto serving plate. Place fish on top of sauce. Serve at once.

    This was dinner the other night. I forgot to post it. It was delicious. I used jalapenos and it was hot enough for DH and not hot enough for me.

    NOTES : Risa's notes:
    * I used Stonewall Kitchen Roasted Garlic Mustard.
