Why I Love This Recipe

There is no story here, except that I cook about every night and so I gotta be creative. Kraft dinner doesn't do much for me, ammirite? So I dug around in the freezer and the garden, the pantry and the spice cab and the fridge, and this was din-din (and also Alan's lunch- you know who you are).

Ingredients You'll Need

4-6pcs 6-8oz Cod filets
Old Bay seasoning
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil & Butter
3-4 splashes of dry White Wine
2-3 sprigs ea fresh herbs Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, etc
2-3 fresh ripe Tomatoes, diced


* Season fish w/salt, pepper and Old Bay; set in colander to drain off any excess water.

* Heat generous amount oil & butter in heavy saute pan over med heat.

* When oil up to temp to saute, add fish; swirl pan occasionally to splash a little up sides of filets as you cook undisturbed for 2-3min on this side.

* Add splash or 3 (or 4) of wine to pan to deglaze, and carefully turn filets.

* Add herbs and tomatoes, cover and poach 4-6min, til done (firm & flaky but not tough).

Questions, Comments & Reviews

This sounds easy and good. I can also imagine using my home fish Haddock. I often cook it in the oven with herbs, tomatoes and cheese :) Doing it in the pan is a good option also. I just LOVE fish. Thanks for sharing.
