Directions

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and crushed chili pepper and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 3 minutes. The garlic should not brown. Add tomatoes and crush with your hands as you add them to the pan.

Add wine, bay leaves, saffron, and ½ c. water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until flavors meld, 5-7 minutes.

Season with The Fresh Market Sea Salt & Black Peppercorn Grinder. Reduce heat to medium-low. Season cod with a few grinds of The Fresh Market Sea Salt & Black Peppercorn Grinder, then place in skillet. Cover and cook at a bare simmer until cod is opaque throughout and beginning to flake, 5-7 minutes. Thicker pieces will take longer to cook.

Gently transfer cod fillets to shallow bowls for serving and spoon poaching liquid over.
