  1. Step 1 Prepare greens

    Prepare a mix of your favorite chopped fresh greens (baby spinach, baby arugula, red cabbage, savory cabbage, baby bok choy) and refrigerate up to 3 days.

  2. Step 2 Prepare quinoa

    Add quinoa, water, salt and pepper in an 8-10-quart sauce pot, bring to a low simmer and cook for 15-18 minutes. Strain and drain well, toss in a bowl with olive oil and place onto a sheet tray to cool. When cool, transfer to a container and refrigerate up to 3 days.

  3. Step 3 Roast brussels sprouts

    Preheat oven to 500°F, high convection if possible. In a mixing bowl, toss the brussels sprouts with olive oil and place evenly onto a parchment lined sheet pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook for 8-10 minutes until golden brown and edges are slightly charred. Cool down at room temperature, cover and refrigerate up to 3 days. May be served warm or cold.

  4. Step 4 Make sauce

    In a sauté pan, over low heat, toast crushed coriander seed for 15 seconds, add olive oil, honey, pomegranate molasses, lemon juice and bell pepper, bring to a simmer for 3 minutes, remove and cool. Add lemon zest, urfa biber chili and cilantro. Refrigerate up to 3 days.

  5. Step 5 Cook cod

    Heat oven to 400°F. Season the Alaska cod with salt and pepper and place in a small 8″–10″ sauté pan. Spread 1 tablespoon of honey-pom lemon chili pepper sauce over the top of each fillet and bake 5-6 minutes until a light golden-brown color is achieved and the sauce becomes a thick glaze consistency. Remove and keep warm.

  6. Step 6 Assemble bowls

    Prepare the sauce, quinoa, lentils and vegetable recipes in advance and refrigerate up to 3 days. Spread the mixed greens evenly on the bottom of the bowl, drizzle 1 tablespoon of honey-pom lemon chili pepper sauce over the greens to build flavor. Toss the quinoa and lentils in a bowl with 1 tablespoon of sauce and place over the greens. Toss the roasted brussels sprouts and optional pomegranate seeds with the cilantro and place them over the quinoa and lentils, leaving a space in the middle to place the Alaska cod. Extra pomegranate seeds may be added here as an option. Place cooked honey-pom wild Alaska cod on top and drizzle with ¼ cup of sauce and 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

  7. Step 7 Notes

    Wild Alaska pollock, salmon, or halibut can be substituted. Cooking times may vary. This dish would also be wonderful baked in a tagine and served with freshly cooked squash, zucchini, or pumpkin.
