How to prepare Sweet and sour cod with onion

Sweet And Sour Cod With Onion is a recipe very appreciated by those who love the flavor of this fish.
Its distinctive feature does not allow compromises and in my family you even compete on who eats more. This version in particular is tasty and balanced thanks to the addition of onions that give sweetness, while the sweet and sour brings the right note of acidity.
Preparing this dish requires no special effort, except for the annoying frying of cod. In addition, cod with sweet and sour onions is one of those recipes that can be prepared in advance, since it can be enjoyed both lukewarm and at room temperature.
For the recipe of cod in sweet and sour, buy at your fishmonger trusted cod already soaked (if possible, keep it in water for a night as a precaution). Cut it into pieces, wash and dab slightly to remove excess water.
Take a plate and pour semolina flour. Lightly flour the cod beating it to eliminate excess flour.
Prepare a pan with plenty of seed oil and fry the cod, turning it from all sides, until golden.
Cut the onions into slices and let them wilt in a pan with 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil over low heat, to prevent them from burning.
Once the onions are golden brown, add the black olives, capers, tomato sauce and a pinch of pepper. Pay attention to the amount of salt needed in the dish because of the natural salty taste of cod; you can always adjust the salting after cooking, if necessary.
Let cook for 3-4 minutes, then add the previously fried pieces of cod. If the sauce is too thick, you can add a few tablespoons of hot water.
Cover and continue cooking for about 15 minutes.
Two minutes before turning off the heat, sprinkle the cod with a mixture of vinegar and dissolved sugar, letting it fade. The dish should be served lukewarm to allow the vinegar to evaporate completely and allow the ingredients to flavor each other.

Cod is a fish with a low saturated fat content, which should make up less than 10% of the total daily calories.
On the contrary, it is a source rich in omega 3, which brings benefits to the health of the heart and arteries.
In addition, it is an excellent source of high-quality proteins, B vitamins (important for the proper functioning of the body), magnesium (a mineral involved in numerous cellular reactions), potassium (which by regulating heart rate and pressure contributes to cardiovascular health), phosphorus (necessary for the health of bones, teeth, kidneys, muscles and heart, as well as for the metabolism and transmission of nerve impulses) and selenium (which helps protect the body from oxidative stress).

However, cod is also rich in cholesterol and, above all, sodium, two nutrients whose excesses may pose a risk to cardiovascular health.
Healthy adults should not exceed a daily intake of cholesterol above 300 mg and sodium above 2000 mg.
