2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1½ cups)
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 teaspoon black cumin (nigella) seeds
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 cup cauliflower florets

1½ teaspoons salt
1 cup Greek yogurt

1. Heat olive oil in a large, wide-rimmed sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. 

2. Add the garlic and ginger and sauté for a minute until aromatic. Add the turmeric and black cumin seeds. Add the cauliflower, broccoli, and bell pepper and toss to coat in spices. Pour in the coconut milk and Serrano pepper (if using) and bring to a low simmer. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Stir in the wild Alaska pollock and 1 teaspoon salt. Simmer 5 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through.
