Poached Cod with Lemon and Capers
---------------------------------
2 or 3 green onions, cut into 2 inch long pieces
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 red onion, cut lengthwise into thin slices
2 Tbsp capers, drained well
1 carrot, cut into thin matchstick pieces
4 (4 oz.) cod fillets
2 lemons

Heat oil in a deep skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté 3 minutes.
Add capers and sauté 1 minute. Add carrot and cook 2 minutes. Stir in green
onions. Spread vegetables evenly over bottom of skillet. Lay cod on the
vegetables in skillet. Add a small amount of water just to cover the bottom
of the skillet. Cover and cook until fish is just opaque in the center,
about 10 minutes. Gently transfer fish to a serving platter. Top with
vegetables and capers. Just before serving, squeeze the lemons over the
entire dish.
