Is it me or is Cod fish literally the best fish to make in a snap? So Abdel has been asking me to make steamed cod fish with butter for a few days now. I mean how can I say no? He has been recipe testing vegan cookies with me for 3 days straight. Debating with me if there can ever be too much nutmeg. I can’t help but laughing because if he indulges my cravings, so I certainly can make him some fish.

Cod with Tomato Thyme Sauce

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons thyme
  • 2 large garlic clove peeled and minced
  • 2 teaspoons minced shallots
  • 2 large plum tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 7-ounce skinless cod fillets

Instructions

  • Prep the fish: Use a paper towel to pat the fish dry on both sides. Sprinkle the top of the fish generously with salt and pepper.
  • Warm the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Put the fish, seasoned-side down, in the pan. Cook the fish for 2 minutes without moving it. When ready to flip, it should also release fairly easily from the pan using a fish spatula. Flip and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Remove fish and set aside.
  • In the skillet- Add shallots, tomatoes, garlic and thyme cook for 1 minute. Add butter and lemon juice. Add fish and cook for about 6-8 minutes. Check center to ensure tat the fish is no longer opaque.
  • Serve immediately: Serve the fish while still hot from the pan with any finishing garnishes. White fish can often be very flakey after cooking; don’t worry if it flakes apart a bit as you serve it.

    Excellent recipe. I added baby spinach so we had our whole meal in one pan. Will definitely be making this again.

    I made this tonight and it was so delicious. I could have easily added more fish since there was plenty of sauce. You list Canola oil but refer to using olive oil in the recipe. I figure it was one and the same but I have a daughter that is learning to cook and she get frustrated when the ingredients don’t match the recipe. I will make again!

    Delicious.
