Bacon-Wrapped Black Cod with Spinach

It may not be corn beef and cabbage, but it turns out that crackly, savory bacon and fresh, flaky fish are soulmates and a yummy alternative to the St. Patty’s Day staple. The spinach is just a little green for the occasion.

Things I look for in a mid-March dinner-party recipe: easy to prepare, seasonal ingredients and tons of flavor. Well, this recipe, which incorporates two of my favorite ingredients - bacon and black cod - checks ALL the boxes. Adding some Smithfield bacon lends savory flavor and crunchy texture to fresh black cod, while a bed of sautéed spinach keeps the dish light. The best part? The entire meal can be cooked and on the table in a matter of 40 minutes.

PREP: 10 MINS

COOK: 30 MINS

SERVES: 4 SERVINGS

Ingredients


12 strips hickory-smoked bacon

Four 6-ounce black cod fillets

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 leek, thinly sliced

2 garlic cloves, minced

5 cups baby spinach

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons capers

Directions


1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Arrange the bacon slices on the baking sheet in an even layer. Bake until the bacon begins to brown but is still soft, not crisp, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool until it is easy to handle.

3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Meanwhile, on a clean work surface, season the fillets with salt and pepper. Wrap each fillet with 3 pieces of bacon, securing the ends to the fish with toothpicks or small skewers.

4. Add the fillets to the skillet, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the bacon is noticeably brown and crisp, 9 to 12 minutes. Flip the fish once or twice while cooking. 

5. Transfer the fish to a clean plate and tent with aluminum foil.

6. Add the butter to the pan and melt over medium heat. Add the leek and garlic; sauté until fragrant, about 1 minute. 

7. Add the spinach, lemon zest and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 4 minutes. 

8. Serve the bacon-wrapped cod over the spinach, garnished with capers.
