Cod in Lemon sauce

To feed your family healthily ideally you give them fish to eat every now and then! At least this is what I try to do twice a week. Now as I am not a fish eater myself I tend to rely on the opinion of my family to know if a certain recipe is a success or not. This one is a resounding success! The cod is tender and a delight to eat.

I like to serve it with Potato – Zucchini Mash, Crushed potatoes with Sour Cream and Chives or in spring with Wild garlic infused potato Mash. Perfect also with Pilaf Rice.

Obviously it’s delicious with rice or pasta as well.

Recipe Cod with Lemon sauce

  • 300 g fish fillets,
  • salt,
  • pepper,
  • 40 ml oil,
  • 80 ml fish stock,
  • juice of half a lemon,
  • 2 table spoons of single cream,
  • 1 table spoon of parsley.

Prepare the fillets with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the fillets in it, 2 – 3 minutes per side, then put into another dish and keep warm.

Add the stock to the pan and let simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the lemon juice and bring to a quick boil.

Take the pan off the stove, add the cream and the parsley.

Serve the fillets with the sauce.
