  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion in the hot oil until almost tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning to onion; cook and stir until garlic is fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Stir zucchini, yellow squash, olives, and capers into onion mixture; top with cod fillets. Sprinkle tomatoes, remaining 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper onto cod fillets. Reduce heat, cover skillet, and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork and zucchini is tender, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over fish; cover skillet until cheese melts, about 2 minutes.

Good, but I did change the tomatoes and used 1 can of fiery diced tomatoes. Instead of the 2fresh ones. It made more sauce to put over the ride, so the rice wasn't dry!

I used this with salmon instead of cod, and it was the best salmon I have ever made. I left out the capers and yellow squash, used fresh basil, and subbed freshly grated parmesan for the mozzarella.

I was looking for a fish recipe that was sugar and carb free. This was easy to prepare with ingredients I had on hand. I didn't have yellow squash or capers and had to substitute green olives since my husband doesn't like black olives. I also served a side of asparagus for some extra veggies. My husband really liked it.
