sauteed cod in greek seasoned butter wine sauce

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 minute. It reminded me of lunch on the Adriatic when we were driving along the Dalmatian coast of Croatia from Debrovnik to Split. Truly enchanting. xo ~peace & good eats~ ally

Alrighty, this has nothing to do with cod fish, but if you haven’t tried my Croatian Cheesecake then you must! I promise extraordinary. And, don’t let the word ‘cheesecake’ scare you into thinking it’s some complicated fancy dancy difficult recipe. It’s not! You know me, I’m the gunslinger rogue baker!
