Cod Provencal ~ J's Favorite Fish Dish!

I  was digging through my recipes about 3 months ago when I came across a tattered and torn page pulled from an old issue of Martha Stewart's Living. As luck would have it I happened to have all of the ingredients needed to make this one dish was a big hit in the Porter house.  A refreshing switch from the comfort food I usually crave. A wonderful heart warming dinner low in calories and high in's Mr.J's favorite fish dish. That's saying a lot, he will eat anything with fish in it....cooked OR raw!

Cod Provencal
After making this 'fish dish' a few times I began putting all of the zucchini under the fish. The zucchini cooked in this amazing broth is tastier than the zucchini cooked on top of the fish. I'm giving you this recipe in it's original version, you cook it for your family and decide which is better.......You'll be glad ya did!
