Update Servings
  • 1 pound cod fillets (or other firm white fish)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, dill, oregano, chives, basil, etc.
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 lemon (optional)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • salt and pepper
15 mins
10 mins
25 mins
  • If using the lemon, remove a small amount of zest from a lemon and chop it very finely. Make a paste of finely chopped herbs, butter, and the lemon zest, if using. Chop the onion very finely and set aside.
  • Remove skin, if any, from the fillets. Cut into 4 serving size pieces. Make 3 or 4 cuts into each of the fillets, about 3/4 of the way through, and fill each cut with some of the herb mixture.
  • In a small skillet, just large enough to hold the fillets in a single layer, melt one tablespoon of butter over medium heat and add the chopped onion. Cook about 5 minutes, until the onions soften.
  • Add wine to the onions in the pan. Put the fillets on top of the onions, adjust the heat to maintain a simmer, cover, and cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork ( about 10 minutes for 1 inch thick fillets, less if  thinner).
  • Serve hot, spooning some of the pan sauce over each fillet, if you wish. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • TIP: To have lemon available for zesting, freeze  rinds whenever using lemons for juice. Well wrapped, they will keep for months and are easier to grate when frozen.
