Ingredients

Cod

  • 1 1/2 lbs cod fillets
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter sliced

Seasoning

  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp table salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ¾ tsp ground paprika
  • Few lemon slices
  • Herbs parsley or cilantro

Instructions

  • Stir together ingredients for seasoning in a small bowl.
  • Cut cod into smaller pieces, if desired. Season all sides of the cod with the seasoning.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once butter melts, add cod to skillet. Cook 2 minutes.
  • Turn heat down to medium. Turn cod over, top with remaining butter and cook another 3-4 minutes.
  • Butter will completely melt and the fish will cook. (Don’t overcook the cod, it will become mushy and completely fall apart.)
  • Drizzle cod with fresh lemon juice. Top with fresh herbs, if desired. Serve immediately.
