Super Quick and Easy Lemon Garlic Butter Cod Fillets

Fresh Cod is not only easily accessible but a very versatile fish. This lightly floured cod cooks up in minutes for a quick and delicious under 30 minute meal.

I love the flaky texture of Cod. It absorbs flavor really well yet still carries a subtle but distinct flavor. You can definitely do with with any fish of your choice.

Adding Fresh garlic, butter and ,lemon to anything is superb and with Cod especially gives it a rich delectable taste.

These fillets were seasoned with lemon juice and salt, then laid into a seasoned mix of flour and breadcrumbs before searing in a hot pan of garlic butter and finished off with a heavy basting of lemon juice and a hearty handful of fresh parsley and thyme.

This took all of 18 minutes or so to make from start to finish so if you are in need of a quickie, you got it here!

A Healthier Alternative

Butter is great for flavor but its understandable to not want to dredge everything in it for health reasons.

Therefore the best alternative is olive oil. Olive oil is both rich in flavor and a more healthy fat so it will digest better making it better for you. It also pairs really well with garlic and lemon so you won’t necessarily miss the butter.
