On weekday nights I often find myself creating new recipes that are quick and easy. I start by checking the freezer and today I found some wild-caught cod. I quickly thawed the fish in cold water and then looked around my kitchen to see what ingredients I had. I usually do lemon but only had some oranges. I threw together the following ingredients and created a delicious fish dish that was ready in under 30 minutes. I paired it with some greens sauteed in coconut oil and topped with pine nuts.
4 - 6 oz. wild cod fillets
2 tbsp pasture butter
½ tbsp Ceylon cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
½ cup dry vermouth
1-2 cloves, garlic minced
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Melt butter in glass baking dish in oven during preheat.
Squeeze juice of orange and add to butter.
Add garlic, cinnamon, cayenne and sea salt to butter mixture.
Dredge both sides of fish in mixture and use a spoon to pour more atop the fish.
Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until fish is cooked through.
Spoon sauce over fish and serve.
