Cod with a Citrusy Crust
Simple and light dinner. A white fish with a citrusy flavor with an aromatic crust.
- Cod - filets, 2
- Lemon - 1, grated zest and juice
- Garlic - 2 cloves, thinly sliced
- Pimentón de la Vera - 1 teaspoon
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 2 Tablespoons
- Panko - 1-2 Tablespoons
- Thyme - 1 Teaspoons, dried
- Parsley - 2 Teaspoons, dried
- Orange - zest, 2 teaspoons
- Green peppercorns - 1 teaspoon, crushed with a mortar
This a simpler more mundane version of my Cod with Lavender Scent recipe.
- Turn on the oven broiler or preheat the oven at 232º c (450º F).
- Make sure the fish fillets are at a room temperature. Pat dry with paper towels.
- Sprinkle some lemon juice on the filet and then season with sea salt and black pepper.
- Then add (in layers) the rest of the ingredients in the following order: lemon zest, orange zest, garlic, thyme, parsil, green peppercorns and Panko.
- Rub a little bit of Olive oil on aluminum sheet pan. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Put the fish on top. Pour a little bit of lemon juice on the pan (not over the fish) so that will absorb more citrus flavor.
- Put in the oven and cook for about 8-10 minutes. If you are broiling put in the middle rack
- Serve and enjoy with mashed potatoes and vegetables (asparagus in my case)!
Fish should never be over cooked or it will be too hard and not so tasty. When you cut it with a fork, it should separate into small pieces easily. Yes, you don't need a knife if the fish is cooked to perfection!
