2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

1/2 cup each red wine and fish stock or clam juice

1 tablespoon capers

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup (packed) parsley, chopped

1/2 pound cod, cut into 1inch chunks

1 tablespoon butter, optional


  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet. Add onion and garlic and begin to saute. Cover and cook until softened, about 5 minutes (if onions begin to stick add a spoonful of water to the skillet and continue to cook).
  2. Add the red wine, clam juice, capers, and thyme and bring liquid to a boil. Simmer over low heat until reduced to 1/2 cup.
  3. Right before serving bring the sauce back to a simmer and add the fish. Cover and cook over very low heat until the fish is just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and swirl in butter and parsley (don't worry if fish falls apart).
  4. Adjust seasoning and spoon in deep plates over rice, potatoes or garlic croutons.
