  • 6 oz Swiss Chard
  • 12 oz Cauliflower
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 12 oz Pacific Cod
  • 1 tsp smoked Paprika
  • 0 1/8 tsp Red or Cayenne Pepper
  • 0 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
  • 2 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 individual packet Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 1 oz Shallots
  • 3 tablespoon Olive Oil


  1. Dice the shallot into ¼-inch pieces; set aside. Finely chop the garlic; set aside. In a small bowl, mix together paprika, cayenne pepper, and ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper; set the paprika spice mix aside.
  2. In a small sauce pot, over medium-high heat add the shallots, rice wine vinegar, Splenda, ¼ teaspoon of salt, and ¼ cup of water. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes then transfer to a medium bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and mix to combine.
  3. In a medium nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat add 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Add the cauliflower and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly browned.
  4. Meanwhile, pat dry the cod fillets with paper towels and season each fillet with paprika spice mix.  In a large nonstick sauté pan add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When the oil is hot, sear the fish for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through. (FDA recommends cooking fish to a minimum 145°F)
  5. Add the Swiss chard and garlic to the cauliflower; cook for 1 to 2 minutes over medium-high heat until swiss chard is slightly wilted.  Stir in the pickled shallots and mix to combine.
  6. Divide the cauliflower and Swiss chard in the middle of two plates. Top with the cod fillets.  Enjoy!
