Roast Cod with Garlic Butter


1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened

1 1/2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 large garlic clove, peeled and minced

2 teaspoons minced shallots

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 1/2 tablespoons minced prosciutto di Parma

1 tablespoon almond, rice, or all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

Salt, to taste

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons canola oil

4 (7-ounce) skinless cod fillets

Garnish: lemon wedges


Stir together first 10 ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

Heat oil in a wide, deep, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Season the cod fillets with salt and pepper, and cook 4 minutes. Turn fillets over; cook 1 minute.

Spoon 1 tablespoon butter mixture over the top of each fillet; transfer skillet to oven, and bake at 450° for 2 minutes or until fish is just cooked through and opaque in the center.

Add any remaining butter to pan, and let melt, stirring with juices in pan; spoon over fish, and garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.
