Healthy Cooking Tips:
When cutting and cooking cod for dishes such as this it is best to buy filets that are thick cut. Do not use thin pieces because they will fall apart. When making this recipe, you want to prepare all your ingredients before you start cooking. Once you start to stir-fry it goes fast and it is easy to overcook your ingredients if you are still preparing them. It is also important not to rush reducing your sauce. The flavor dilutes some after it is added to the rest of the ingredients, so you want it to have an intense flavor before adding. Make sure you don't cook the cabbage any longer than for 2-3 minutes, as it will begin to release its water and dilute the flavor of your dish. For best results slice it very thin and barely cook it.
