Ingredients

  • 2 pkg (750 g each) Compliments Diced Butternut Squash
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) finely chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon zest
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper, or to taste
  • 4 cod fillets (5 oz/150 g each)
  • 4 slices Sensations Sliced Serrano Ham
  • finely chopped parsley for garnish
  • lemon wedges, for serving

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). In bowl, toss together squash (frozen product does not need to be thawed -- or use fresh squash), shallots, broth, 2 tbsp (30 mL) oil, lemon juice, thyme and salt. Transfer to greased 8-in. (20- cm) square baking dish. In small bowl, toss together cheese, lemon zest, pepper and 1 tbsp (15 mL) oil; sprinkle over squash. Cover with foil. Bake 25 to 30 min. until squash is tender. Remove foil. Bake another 10 to 12 min., uncovered, until golden brown.
  2. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat dry cod fillets with paper towel. Wrap each fillet with a slice of ham, securing with toothpick if needed. Place on prepared sheet. Brush wrapped fish with remaining oil. Bake in same oven as squash 8 to 10 min. until fish begins to flake and ham is crispy.
  3. Sprinkle fish with parsley and serve with baked squash and lemon wedges for squeezing. 

Tips: Substitute Parmesan cheese with breadcrumbs for a dairy-free option. Also, when cooking fish, adjust cook time to thickness of fillet. A general rule is, for every 1-in. (2.5-cm) thickness, allow about 10 min. cook time.
