You know you are a foodie when…. how would you answer this?

I would answer it like this, when you are can’t wait to see your friend at the gym who last night posted on Facebook that they ate at one of your favorite restaurants. You can’t wait to ask them what they ordered, and then the two of you can compare each and every bite you took and how amazing each one tasted.  Yep, that happened to me over the weekend.

You should have seen the guys face who was sitting next to us during warm up stretch.  I think all he heard was our oohs and ahhs. I was firing out questions like, did you order this, AHHH, you ordered that?  OHHH that sounds so good, I will have to get that next time.  Cod with Bacon Tomato and Artichoke healthy recipe that is prepared in one pot recipe | ahealthylifeforme.com

I love trying new restaurants not only for the great food but for the inspiration.  Getting creative ideas of what different foods go well together while eating a great meal with friends on a Saturday night, is my idea of work research.

Before the holidays the hubby and I went out with friends to a local bistro that is all about making complex sauces with simple ingredients.  I had the pleasure of trying an olive and artichoke dip served with a crusty bread and while I was munching away I got to thinking about enjoying that incredible dip as a sauce with fish.

Lucky for me on Monday the fishmonger  had gotten in some Alaskan Black Cod.  Using the basic ingredients from the dip I enjoyed and adding in a bit of bacon and tomatoes, I got this delicious Cod with Bacon Artichoke and Olive recipe.

I hope you give this recipe a try, it might look fancy, but it really is a very easy recipe to prepare.

About this recipe:

I got lucky and found fresh Alaskan Black Cod, if you can’t find fresh Cod, try using Halibut or Sea Bass with the skin removed.  I also used artichokes from a jar vs. a can.  Artichokes from a jar are marinated in olive oil or water, while canned artichokes are pickled in vinegar and have a more acidic taste. I prefer the flavor of a jar in this dish. The Castelvetrano olives that I used in this dish are a huge favorite for my husband, but they can be tough to pit.  When I pit olives I like to put the olive on a work surface, set the flat side of the knife on top, and give it a good whack. {Be careful here so you don’t cut your hand.}  The force splits open the olive and frees the pit. Be sure to wipe the knife blade frequently because it gets oily and very slippery.
