Cook the cod in the microwave and mix in the grapefruit and vegetables for a quick and healthy one-dish meal.

Servings: 2


  • 2 codfish fillets
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 pink grapefruit
  • 1 shallot or small onion
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice, cooked and cooled
  • 1 (8.75-ounce) can of corn, drained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Dash of white wine
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Place the fish on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
  2. Remove seeds and membrane from the bell peppers and cut into small pieces. Peel and cut the grapefruit, removing seeds. Peel the shallot and finely chop.
  3. In a hot pan, roast the pine nuts until they become golden-brown, stirring occasionally.
  4. In a large bowl, mix the rice, peppers, grapefruit, shallot, pine nuts and corn.
  5. For dressing, whisk together in a small bowl the olive oil, vinegar and white wine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Flake the fish with a fork to break into small pieces. Add the fish and dressing to the rice mixture. Mix well and serve.
