Simple quick and easy dishes seem to always make me smile. I used frozen cod in this recipe because I couldn’t find any really good fresh cod~~got this at Costco, had tasted it, so I knew it’d be a great substitute for fresh.
Make sure after you thaw the filet to pat a good bit of the excess water from the fish; and, don’t over cook it~~a couple of minutes on each side, and it’s going to be good to go. I served fresh broccolini and frozen green beans (just a quick saute/steaming of them in some olive oil and a little sea salt) with the cod~~all on a big platter~~that way the butter/herb/wine sauce that was poured over the fish also flavored the veggies.
This was a simple and absolutely boholicious lunch~~really you can have all this done and plated in about 18-20 minutes~it reminded me of lunch on the Adriatic when we were driving along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia from Debrovnik to Split~~truly enchanting~~check the photos!

What you need:
4 (4 oz. each) pieces of cod (fresh or previously frozen, thawed an excess water patted out with paper towels)
3 Tbl. salted butter
1/2 tsp. sea salt
2 tsp. Greek seasoning mixture
1 cup white wine (I used chardonnay.)
What you do:
In a large cast iron skillet (about 10″ diameter) over medium heat, melt the butter, add the salt and Greek seasoning and blend cooking about a minute. Add the cod filets, cover with a lid and cook on each side about 2 to 2 1/2 minutes. Remove the cod to a plate. Cover with the lid.
Add the wine to the butter/herb drippings. Increase the heat to medium high, bring to boil for about 2-3 minutes.
