From the Test Kitchen

Cod is the perfect companion for bold sides and garnishes thanks to its mild flavor. This recipe pairs the fish with a zesty Mexican hash of hearty sweet potato and tender summer squash (you may receive green zucchini, grey zucchini, or yellow squash). We’re topping the hash with a bright, fresh salsa of roasted tomatillos and pickled jalapeño—and, for another layer of flavor, drizzling it all with a cooling lime sour cream.

1 Prepare the ingredients & make the lime sour cream:

Preheat the oven to 475°F. Remove and discard any husks from the tomatillos. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the sweet potato. Medium dice the squash. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Roughly chop the cilantro leaves and stems. Quarter the lime. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops. In a bowl, combine the sour cream, the juice of 2 lime wedges, the green tops of the scallions, 1 tablespoon of water, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Roughly chop the pepper. Thoroughly wash your hands, knife, and cutting board immediately after handling the pepper.

Roast the tomatillos:
2 Roast the tomatillos:

Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil. Place the tomatillos on the prepared sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Turn to thoroughly coat. Roast 12 to 14 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Remove from the oven. Carefully transfer to a cutting board.

While the tomatillos roast, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sweet potato in a single, even layer; cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned and slightly softened. Add the squash and cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned.
