Pan Roasted Cod with Garlic Thyme Butter

this past friday, justin & i, along with 2 other couples, attended a cooking class at irwin street cooking school! it was an absolute blast & while the girls learned a few new tips & tricks, the boys did more of the drinking & socializing. role reversal eh?!
*how adorable is my friend melissa!! mason ray pittman will be here in june & was a huge fan of the chocolate cake!!

so over the next few days, i'll add some of the delicious recipes we cooked for you to try! they were all super easy & can be made in your own home. here was our spread & menu:

{pan roasted cod with garlic thyme butter}

ingredients {in order of use}
*serves 2

{garlic thyme butter}
  • 1/2 stick butter, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • salt & pepper, to your taste
mix all ingredients in a bowl. refrigerate so butter hardens.

{pan roasted cod}
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 filets of cod {or any other white fish}, patted dry
  • olive oil
1. pour flour on a plate & season with salt & pepper. dredge fish in flour on presentation side only & shake off excess flour. place on a plate.

2. cover the surface of a medium skillet with olive oil & heat to medium heat. when oil is hot & shimmering, tilt the skillet away from you & gently place the filets in. cook approx. 4 minutes on one side, undisturbed. flip & continue cooking until cooked through {approx. 3-5 minutes}.

3. transfer to a serving platter & top with small pats of the garlic thyme butter. allow butter to melt & serve!
