This easy Pan Seared Cod is a delicious and healthy way to shake up your weeknight dinners. Made in less than 15 minutes, this easy weeknight dinner tastes like a restaurant dish but is easy enough for any cook to make at home.
What you need:
- 1.5 lbs cod (thick cut filets, 4 filets)
- 1/3 cup flour
- 3/4 tsp sweet paprika
- 3/4 tsp Italian seasoning
- 3/4 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
- 1 tbsp olive oil (more if needed)
- 1 tbsp butter
Pat the fish dry using paper towels.
In a shallow dish, combine the flour, sweet paprika, Italian seasoning, salt, cumin, and pepper. Dredge the fish in the flour on both sides so it is lightly coated.
Heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat in a heavy-bottomed skillet. Once the oil is shimmering, add the fish. Cook for 4-6 minutes until the fish is nicely browned and easily releases from the pan. Flip and cook on the other side for 4-6 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned.
Ingredients for 4 servings: 1 tbsp butter, 2-4 garlic cloves, 2 tbsp capers (optional), 1/2 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth), 1/4 cup chopped parsley. Once the fish is cooked, add a drizzle of olive oil to the pan. Add the garlic and capers to the pan. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add the white wine to deglaze the pan. Scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil and cook for about 1 minute. Stir in the ljuice of 1 lemon and parsley. Serve over fish.
