COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

1)  Season the cod with salt and pepper on both sides

 

2)  Mix 3 TBSP olive oil and TASTE OF TUSCANY spice blend in a small bowl to form a rough paste.  Divide the herb mixture evenly across the top side of each piece of cod and rub into the fish with the back of a spoon.

 

3)  Heat a pan on med-high heat and add 1 TBSP oil.

4)  Sear the cod top side (herb side) down for 2-3 minutes until herb rub turns golden brown.  Flip, turn heat down to medium and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until cod starts to flake when gentle pressure is applied.

 

5) Remove cod from pan, turn off the heat, add the lemon and butter to the pan and whisk to incorporate with any remaining browned spice bits into the sauce (the residual heat in the pan is perfect to melt the butter without burning it).

INGREDIENTS

 

Cod is a common white fish in Europe, but from my Seattle days, I know halibut is a go-to fish in the US.  So basically, pick your fish of choice and just adjust the cooking time to the thickness.

 

If you don’t have fresh lemons to hand, a splash of white wine also works.

COOKING TIME

 

Cook time will vary according to the thickness of fish - so it helps if you can buy 4 pieces with the same thickness.
