Spicy Cod Fish with White Wine

To make Spicy Cod Fish with White Wine, use a good dry white wine and 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.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb Fresh Cod Fillet about 1 large fillet, cleaned
  • 1 tablespoon White Vinegar
  • Water
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 small Shallots julienned
  • 2 stalks Scallions sliced
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tablespoon Fresh Parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 Habanero Pepper no seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Thyme leaves only
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon

Instructions

  • Cut large fillet into smaller fillets - about 1 - 2 inch pieces. Gently rinse the fillets with vinegar and plenty of water. Pat dry and set aside on a large plate. Sprinkle salt and pepper or seafood seasoning if preferred.
  • On low to medium heat, in a nonstick skillet preferably, fry all spices in butter for 5 minutes. Remove from pan while trying to remove most of the butter. In the same pan, add cod fillets in batches and sear spice side down first. Cook 2 minutes per sides, longer if pieces are thicker. When done cooking fillets, pour wine slowly into pan and scrape bottom. Bring to a boil and let the wine reduce by at least half. Add spice blend to wine than cod fish. Cook 3 to 5 minutes to finish cooking cod. Drizzle juice of 1/2 lemon on fish and transfer to plate to serve
