Pacific Cod with Lemon and Olives | Sitka Salmon Shares

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Total time: 20 min
Serves: 2


Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 2 (8 oz) pacific cod fillets
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 c green olives (preferably castelvetrano), roughly chopped
  • ½ c white wine
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 2 Tbsp cold butter

Directions

For the Pacific Cod

In a large, nonstick skillet heated over high heat, add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Season cod fillets with salt and pepper on both sides. Just as oil begins to smoke, add cod fillets searing for 2-3 minutes per side until well-browned and beginning to flake. Be careful not to crowd the pan, cook fish in batches as necessary. Set fish aside.

For the Sauce

In the same skillet over medium heat, add remaining tablespoon olive oil. Sauté shallot for about a minute until purple color fades and shallot is tender. Add minced garlic, stirring until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add green olives, tossing to toast for about a minute. Add white wine, allowing to reduce by half, approximately 3 minutes. Add lemon juice and zest. Remove pan from heat and stir in butter. Season with salt and pepper as needed.
