Let’s Get Cooking!
Poached Cod in Tomato Curry
This recipe uses cherry tomatoes because of their sweetness and how quickly they collapse into a sauce, but you can use larger tomatoes if you have those on hand—just make sure to give them a rough chop before incorporating them into the curry.
Make 4 servings.
- 4 Tablespoons virgin coconut oil or vegetable oil
- 1 red chile, halved, seeded, thinly sliced
- 1 1″ piece fresh ginger, peeled, thinly sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 4 cardamom pods, crushed
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 2 pints cherry tomatoes (about 1 1/4 lb)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut cream
- 4 5-oz skinless cod fillets
- 1 cup basil leaves, torn if large
- salt to taste
- Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium until melted. Add chile, ginger, and garlic and cook, stirring often, until garlic has softened but not taken on any color, about 3 minutes. Add cardamom, coriander, and turmeric and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the tomatoes have burst and released their liquid, 12–15 minutes. Stir in coconut cream; taste and season curry with salt.
- Reduce heat to medium-low. Season cod with salt and nestle into curry. Cover and cook at a bare simmer until fish is opaque throughout and beginning to flake, 5–7 minutes (thicker pieces will take longer to cook).
- Gently transfer cod to shallow bowls. Stir basil into tomato curry, then spoon over fish.
Turmeric Salmon with Coconut Crisp
- 5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 bunches Swiss chard, ribs and stems removed and finely chopped (keep separate)
- 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
- 1 (3-inch) piece of ginger, peeled, thinly sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
- 1 (1 1/2 lb) skinless salmon fillet, preferably center cut
- 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1/2 serrano chile, thinly sliced
- 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
- salt to taste
- freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 300°F. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high. Add Swiss chard ribs and stems, shallot, and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, until shallot is softened but not browned, about 3 minutes. Add Swiss chard leaves and cook, stirring, until partly wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt.
- Combine 2 Tbsp. oil and turmeric in a small bowl. Place salmon, skin side down, on top of greens in skillet. Season salmon with salt and coat with turmeric oil. Transfer to oven and bake until fillet is just opaque in the center and flakes easily and greens are tender, 25–30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat remaining 1 Tbsp. oil in a small skillet over medium. Add garlic, chile, and coconut flakes and cook, stirring often, until garlic and coconut turn golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer coconut crisp to a small bowl and season lightly with salt.
- Season fish and greens with pepper; serve with coconut crisp for topping.
- 1/4 cup double-concentrated tomato paste
- 3 garlic cloves, finely grated
- 1 1/2 tsp ground coriander
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 medium head of green or savoy cabbage (about 2 lb total)
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 3 tbsp chopped dill, parsley, or cilantro
- Kosher salt
- Full-fat Greek yogurt or sour cream (for serving)
- Preheat oven to 350°. Mix tomato paste, garlic, coriander, cumin, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
- Cut cabbage in half through core. Cut each half through core into 4 wedges.
- Heat ¼ cup oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high. Working in batches if needed, add cabbage to pan cut side down and season with salt. Cook, turning occasionally, until lightly charred, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer cabbage to a plate.
- Pour remaining ¼ cup oil into skillet. Add spiced tomato paste and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until tomato paste begins to split and slightly darken, 2–3 minutes. Pour in enough water to come halfway up sides of pan (about 1½ cups), season with salt, and bring to a simmer. Nestle cabbage wedges back into skillet (they should have shrunk while browning; a bit of overlap is okay). Transfer cabbage to oven and bake, uncovered and turning wedges halfway through, until very tender, liquid is mostly evaporated, and cabbage is caramelized around the edges, 40–50 minutes.
- Scatter dill over cabbage. Serve with yogurt alongside.

Potato salad? Egg salad? This deconstructed salad combines the best of both!
