Olive Oil Poached Cod Salad is the perfect summer meal, featuring grilled seasonal veggies.
We live for the summer. Longer days, lots of sunshine, and an abundance of beautiful, locally grown vegetables are some of the reasons we long for the summer months all year round. Having been confined to our home for the past few months, the beauty of summer is especially appealing this year.
We have partnered with our friends at Filippo Berio to create an incredible meal that showcases summer’s best produce. This Niçoise inspired salad is healthy, light, and full of robust flavor. Topped with tender olive oil poached cod, this is one easy recipe your family will love.
Why Poach Cod in Olive Oil?
- It’s easy! The low temperature makes it almost impossible to overcook
- It’s fast! Higher heat than boiling water (and lower than frying) makes it a quick option
- It tastes great! Filippo Berio Robusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil + fresh herbs imparts a deep, full-bodied flavor to the fish in just minutes
Filippo Berio quality Olive Oils & Glazes make it easy to add flavor to fresh summer meals. This Olive Oil Poached Cod Salad is a gourmet dish that comes together in only thirty minutes! That means less time cooking and more time enjoying dinner outside on the back deck.

To Poach Fish:
In a small sauté pan (6-7 Inches), pour ½ C Filippo Berio Robusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil, thyme and onion and heat over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add fish to oil and cook for 5-6 minutes, occasionally spooning oil over top of fish (do not allow oil to get to hot where it fries the fish).
While fish is cooking, start to assemble the salad and make the dressing.
To make dressing:
Combine all ingredients and whisk until well combined.
Place romaine in a mixing bowl, and drizzle dressing over and toss.
Move to a serving bowl and add vegetables, olives and eggs.
