For the Tomato Lemon Butter Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (14 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup white wine (optional)
  • 1/4 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • Fresh basil or parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Cod:

  • Pat the cod fillets dry with paper towels.
  • Season them with salt and black pepper.

2. Sear the Cod:

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the cod fillets to the skillet, and sear them for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they’re golden and cooked through. The cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillets. Remove the cod from the skillet and set it aside.

3. Make the Tomato Lemon Butter Sauce:

  • In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant.

4. Add Tomatoes and Wine:

  • Pour in the diced tomatoes (with their juices) and white wine (if using).
  • Simmer the mixture for about 5 minutes, allowing the alcohol from the wine to cook off.

5. Lemon Zest and Juice:

  • Add the lemon zest and juice to the skillet. Stir to combine.

6. Chicken or Vegetable Broth:

  • Pour in the chicken or vegetable broth. Stir well.

7. Return the Cod:

  • Return the seared cod fillets to the skillet, nestled into the sauce.

8. Simmer:

  • Simmer for an additional 5-6 minutes, allowing the cod to soak up the flavors of the sauce.

9. Season and Garnish:

  • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning with salt and black pepper, as needed.
  • Garnish with fresh chopped basil or parsley.

10. Serve:

  • Serve the cod fillets on plates, generously spooning the tomato lemon butter sauce over each one.
