Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 (12 oz.) pkg. Full Circle frozen Alaskan cod fillets, thawed and patted dry
  • 1 medium shallot, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • cooked orzo, to serve (if desired)
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high. Season cod all over with salt and pepper, if desired; add to skillet and cook 2 minutes per side. Meanwhile, warm a large plate by running it under hot water; pat dry. Transfer fish to plate and cover tightly with foil. Set aside (fish will continue to cook as it rests).
  2. Return skillet to range over medium-high heat; add remaining butter and cook, stirring constantly, 3–5 minutes or until foam has subsided and butter is browned.
  3. Add shallot and sauté until just softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in garlic and crushed red pepper; sauté 1 minute more. Add tomatoes; cook, stirring gently, until blistered and juices have thickened slightly, about 5 minutes.
  4. Add lemon zest and juice to pan. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute more; remove from heat. Uncover fish and serve over orzo, if using; top with prepared tomato mixture and fresh parsley.
