Roasted Cod With Garlic Lemon Butter

Course: Seafood


  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/4 small white onion minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound cod filet portioned into 3 or 4 pieces
  • additional lemon slices or wedges for serving


  • In a small bowl, stir together the butter, basil, garlic, onion, dijon, parmesan, flour, and lemon juice. ┬áIt'll be like a weird butter paste.
  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Season your fish with a little salt and pepper and lay it in the hot oil. Cook for about 4 minutes.
  • Flip your fish to cook the other side. Top each fillet with a large spoonful of the butter mixture. Cook another 4 minutes. Actual cooking time will depend on the thickness of your fish. The fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
