Easy Lemon Cod

This is a super easy fish dish.  I make it pretty often and I thought I'd share it with you!

First, put a bit of plain flour in a shallow dish and season it with some salt and pepper.  (Sometimes I get fancy and add a little Fajita-style seasoning)

Take 2 cod fillets (or filets if you're in the US) and coat them in the flour.

Just 1 lemon.

Pull some flat-leaf parsley of the plant in your window herb garden.  (Or skip this step if you don't have an awesome window herb garden :))

Chop the parsley roughly.

Get 100 grams of butter (just over 7 Tbsp). Divide it in half.

Heat a skillet on fairly high heat and put half of the butter in.

Once the butter has melted and starts to bubble, put in the cod fillets.

Cook for 4-5 minutes, then flip them over.

After about 4 minutes, add the rest of the butter.

Once it's melted and bubbling, pour in the lemon juice.

Let the sauce thicken up a bit while swirling it in the pan.  Then add the parsley.

Keep it on the heat until the sauce is a little sticky and reduced.  Then plate up by putting the fish on the plate and pouring the sauce over the top.  Enjoy!
