Codfish is best when fresh. As a favorite fish, its flavor is mild, and if the spices added to the dish are not right, it is easy to end up with a blend seafood dish. I cook cod fish different ways and many times I cannot even remember the recipes.
With this recipe, I decided to fry the spices and herb in butter. The codfish is also pan seared in the same pan. For an authentic taste, and to enhance the flavors of the herbs and the cod an aromatic dry white wine finished with lemon juice tops it all.
I cannot say that I enjoyed this recipe with a side dish because I will not be telling the truth. When I tasted the sauce, I immediately thought about bread. There is something about wine and butter that I cannot explain. Maybe because I love wine, butter, and bread; who knows? So, not too be so bad, I did eat a salad and soon after, satisfied my greediness with the spicy cod fish with white wine with a nice piece of crusty bread.
Note: To make Spicy Cod Fish with White Wine, use a good dry white wine and a good brand of butter. The habanero pepper will not make the dish hot if you do not add the seeds – it will give it a nice peppery taste.
