Grilled Cod with Potato, Leek and Pepper


This dinner of potatoes, cod, and leeks comes together very quickly, making it a great choice for a healthy dinner during the week. Starting the potatoes in the microwave before sauteing them helps to drastically cut down on the cooking time. The cod is lightly seasoned with a simple mixture of salt, pepper, paprika, and chile pepper, though if you want to add a bit more flavor you can easy sprinkle some fresh herbs over the top of the whole dish once it is plated.
