430 Calories


  • 8oz baby red potatoes

  • 1 bunch asparagus

  • 2 cod fillets, 3oz each

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 12 tsp salt

  • 14 tsp black pepper


  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp or 12 packet of Truvía® Calorie-Free Sweetener

  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp minced shallots

  • 1 bunch tarragon, leaves removed & coarsely chopped


  • 1.

    Bring a large heavy pot of water to a boil over high heat.

  • 2.

    While waiting for water to boil, wash potatoes and asparagus. Snap off woody ends of asparagus and discard. Then cut asparagus in half and set aside. Cut potatoes in ½ inch circles and set aside. Fill a small bowl with water and ice and set aside.

  • 3.

    When water is boiling, add asparagus and blanch for 2 minutes. Remove from boiling water using a strainer or tongs and place directly in ice bath to stop cooking.

  • 4.

    Add potatoes to boiling water for 10 minutes.

  • 5.

    Meanwhile, whisk together vinaigrette ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.

  • 6.

    Toss cooked potatoes and asparagus with vinaigrette. Set aside until ready to plate.

  • 7.

    Place a heavy non-stick skillet on burner set to medium-high heat.

  • 8.

    Pat cod dry with paper towels and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  • 9.

    Drizzle 1 Tbsp olive oil in hot skillet and swirl to coat. Gently place both cod fillets in skillet and sauté for 3 minutes without moving so a crust can develop. Carefully flip both fillets and sauté an additional 3-4 minutes. Check the internal temperature so that the fish is cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 145ºF.

  • 10.

    Split the potato/asparagus mixture between 2 plates. Top each plate with a cod fillet. Serve immediately.
