Baked Alaskan Wild Cod with Broccoli, Peppers and Olives

I am seasoning the wild cod with mixed Italian seasoning, grated lemon zest, and a drizzle of olive oil. It will take approximately 18 minutes to roast the vegetables at 375 degrees, but I am setting the timer for 12 minutes at which time I will remove the tray and add the fish.

Then everything goes back into the oven for another 6 minutes for the fish and vegetables to finish cooking through. Before serving, add some finishing sea salt and freshly ground pepper, so easy to prep, fast to cook, flavorful, and nutritious.

For the vegetables

2 cups broccoli florets, cut into ¾” thick slices

¼ red onion, cut into ¼” thick slices

1 red or yellow pepper, seeds removed cut into ¼” thick slices

¼ cup pitted Kalamata olives

1 tbsp olive oil

For the Fish

1 lb wild cod

¼ tsp mixed Italian seasoning

Pinch dried red chili flakes

1 lemon, zest only


Heat the Steam oven in the Combination Convection Steam mode at 375 ℉  (190 ℃) or heat the Convection oven in the Convection Bake or Convection Roast mode.

Combine the vegetables with a sprinkle of salt and some freshly ground pepper and spread them onto a rimmed baking pan. Place the pan in the oven and set the timer for 12 minutes.

Meanwhile, season the fish and drizzle it with a little olive oil. When the timer elapses, remove the pan with the vegetables from the oven and push them to one side to make some room for the fish. Place the fish on the pan and return the pan to the oven. Set the timer for 5 - 6 minutes and cook the fish until it separates in flakes.

BBQ Pulled Turkey

Turkey pieces slowly braised in a homemade BBQ sauce then pulled off the bone and served with cornbread or soft rolls is a delicious easy dish to prepare and a perfect dish for entertaining. This dish can be cooked covered in Convection or uncovered in the Steam oven.

The homemade BBQ sauce is also key to achieving great flavor with this recipe so begin by preparing the BBQ sauce and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, season the turkey pieces and set them aside to absorb the flavors. Even though the skin is discarded when shredding the turkey, braising the turkey with the skin on does add to the fat content but most importantly it adds great flavor.

For the BBQ sauce

2 tbsp butter + 1tbs oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine the following ingredients

3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

¾ cup ketchup

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp dry mustard powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup water

For the turkey

2 bone-in turkey thighs or a combination of bone-in  leg and thigh or leg and breast

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp pepper

1 Tbsp chipotle chili in adobo sauce (optional)


A large oven-safe pan or Dutch oven is ideal for preparing the sauce then you can just put the turkey pieces into the sauce and transfer the pan to the oven. Otherwise, prepare the sauce in an oven safe casserole, and add the turkey pieces.

Saute the onions in the butter and oil over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook gently for a few minutes then add the remaining sauce ingredients that you have combined. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, season the turkey pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.

Heat the oven, Convection Bake 325F (163C) or Steam Braising 325F (163C). 

Add the turkey pieces to the BBQ sauce and stir in the Chipotle Chili pepper if using. These peppers add a wonderful touch of smokey heat to the sauce. Place the pan in the oven (covered if using Convection) and cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is very tender and easily falls off the bone.

In order to “pull” the turkey remove the pieces from the hot sauce and set aside to cool. Remove the skin, discard the bones and shred the meat by hand or with a fork and knife. Return to the pulled turkey to the sauce and reheat if needed before serving.
