Steamed Cod with Veggies & Rice

I'm on a roll this week with posts! Hopefully it continues, right? Did you all notice the "search" tool on the right of the page now? If you remember I posted a certain recipe on here and you want to find it without going through all the posts, just search for it! Hope it works well for you!

Now, on to the healthy recipe for the day! Steamed Cod with Veggies & Rice. This was pretty delicious, and really simple! 
First, you start by sauteing some veggies. The amounts and kinds of veggies are really up to you.  I chose 1 bag of mushrooms and 1 lb of asparagus. And then also add 1/2 cup chopped green onions. I think some red or green peppers would have been good too! Use a little bit of olive oil to keep them from sticking and season with a little ginger. Saute for about 5 minutes, or until crisp tender. Don't they look yummy?

Next, you wanna get some liquid in there. Add about 1/4 cup dry white wine. Cook until most of the liquid is gone. 

 Then add about 2/3 cup chicken broth and 1 lb cod fillets. I sprinkled these with salt, pepper, and ginger. Cover the skillet so the cod fillets can steam cook.

That's it! After about 5 minutes or when the fish flakes easily you're done! Plate it up, serve with some rice. We used the easy stuff. Uncle Ben's 90 second rice Veggie Harvest.
So, to review--
Veggies (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup green onions
Olive oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
2/3 cup chicken broth
1 lb cod fillets
Salt & pepper

Heat skillet to medium high heat. Add olive oil, ginger, veggies and onions. Cook for 5 minutes or until crisp tender. Add wine and cook until most of liquid is evaporated. Add broth and place cod fillets on top of veggies. Season with salt, pepper, and more ginger. Cover skillet and cook 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
