We got another cod from the CSF today. A beautiful 5 pound one. We decided to broil it.
Here’s the recipe:
Broiled Cod with Butter and Herbs
2 tablespoons fresh tarragon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon thyme
2 tablespoons fresh chives
6 Tbsp melted butter
1.5 pound fillets of cod
salt & pepper
4 Tbsp bread crumbs
Set the oven rack up to the top. Put in some heavy quarry tiles. Put a heavy skillet or cookie sheet on top of them, then turn on the broiler and get everything warmed up (15 minutes).
Meanwhile, chop up the herbs and toss them together. Pour the melted butter into a pie plate or baking dish that is big enough to hold the biggest piece of fish. Lay the fish in the butter on each side and then place on a board skin side down. Salt & pepper the fish, then sprinkle the herbs on top. Then sprinkle the bread crumbs on top of that. Finally, drizzle the remaining butter over the top.
Once your pan is warm, place the fillets in it. It should make a nice sizzle. Put it back in the oven. The time depends on how thick the fillet is, but the bread crumbs should get nice and crispy.
