Mediterranean Cod with Roasted Tomatoes

Oregano, thyme and paprika flavor the cod in this 15-minute, Mediterranean-inspired meal. Olives, capers and roasted cherry tomatoes add color and zest to each bite.





Salted Caramel Pistachio-Apricot Baklava

This sweet dessert pastry is made with thin, flaky, buttery layers of phyllo dough and filled with sweet apricots, lightly salted pistachio nuts, and a bit of brown sugar. An apricot caramel sauce is drizzled over the cooled baklava and the entire dessert is sprinkled with coarse salt, providing a sweet and salty bang with each bite.

  • 1½ cups boiling water
  • 1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1½ cups shelled lightly salted pistachio nuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar (see Tip) plus ⅔ cup, divided
  • 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  • Butter-flavor nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

  • ½ (16 ounce) package frozen phyllo dough (14x9-inch rectangles), thawed
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
Prep  - 45 m
Ready In - 1 h 30 m
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Combine boiling water and apricots in a medium bowl. Let stand for 5 minutes. Strain the apricots through a fine mesh sieve, reserving the liquid and gently pressing on the apricots with the back of a large spoon to press out as much liquid as possible. Stir together the drained apricots, the pistachios, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, and the lemon peel in a large bowl. Set aside. 
  2. Coat the bottom of a 13x9-inch baking pan with cooking spray. Unroll phyllo dough (keep the phyllo covered with plastic wrap until needed.) Layer 5 or 6 phyllo sheets in the prepared baking pan, lightly coating the tops of the sheets with the cooking spray except for every third sheet which should be brushed with melted butter. Sprinkle with about one-third of the nut mixture. Repeat layering the phyllo sheets and sprinkling with the nut mixture two more times, coating the top of each phyllo sheet with the cooking spray or the melted butter.
  3.  Layer the remaining phyllo sheets on top of the filling, coating each sheet with the cooking spray or melted butter. Brush the final sheet with the melted butter. Using a sharp knife, cut the stacked layers into 24 diamond- or rectangular-shaped pieces. 
  4. Bake about 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly in the pan on a wire rack. 
  5. Meanwhile, measure the drained apricot soaking liquid. Discard enough of the liquid or add water to the liquid to make ⅔ cup total liquid. Stir together the ⅔ cup apricot soaking liquid, the remaining ⅔ cup brown sugar, and the nutmeg in a small saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until reduced to about ⅓ cup. Pour the syrup evenly over the slightly cooled baklava in the pan. Sprinkle the top evenly with coarse kosher salt. Re-cut the diamonds or rectangles to serve.
  • Tip: We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.

Detective Pikachu Movie Review

Is Detective Pikachu the very best, like no film ever was? We review the first ever live action Pokémon movie
Should I Buy the Detective Pikachu?
Detective Pikachu could have been a disaster, but instead it's really a bit of a delight. A game cast, robust world-building, and a sharp script combine to produce a film that should appeal equally to new fans and nostalgia-driven millennials.
It's a low bar to clear, but this is the best videogame movie yet - by some way.
