Atlantic Cod with Garlic-Herb Butter

It’s easy to get stuck cooking the same dishes week after week. This super easy cod recipe is my go to when I just want something different.  

My fiance and I love it because it is a delicious healthy option.  I only have one picky eater that won’t eat it and that’s because she won’t try any seafood.

It’s always that one… SMH

I like to serve this dish with quinoa or brown rice and roasted asparagus. Yummy!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
time to chill herb butter 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings

Ingredients

Garlic Herb Butter Ingredients:

  • 6 T. unsalted butter softened
  • t. garlic finely minced
  • 1 t. fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1 t. fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 t. fresh basil finely chopped
  • ¼ t. sea salt

Remaining Ingredients:

  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 4- oz. Atlantic cod fillets
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prepare the garlic-herb butter by combining all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the garlic, herbs, and salt are evenly distributed throughout the softened butter.


  2. Transfer the butter mixture to the center of a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a log. Wrap tightly and place inside the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to become firm.


  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat cod filets dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and black pepper, to taste.


  4. Add filets to hot skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they become golden brown. Reduce heat to medium and carefully flip each fillet. Top each filet with an equal amount of herb butter and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes. While cooking, spoon the herb butter back over the filets as it melts.


  5. Remove from heat and transfer fillets to individual serving plates. Drizzle with melted herb butter and garnish with some fresh chopped parsley, if desired.


  6. Serve immediately with some oven-roasted asparagus tossed with remaining herb butter from the skillet or your choice of sides. Enjoy!
