Pan Seared Cod with Garlic Dill Sauce

Are you a bit shocked that you aren't seeing a recipe for tilapia?  I know, I know, we eat a lot of it... but I thought cod would be a good change of pace.  A nice light white fish that isn't too thick and that Chris should enjoy.....   as long as I don't over cook it.... which I, unfortunately, did.  But that is ok, because there was sauce.  And it was a good sauce... sooooo.... all was well and definitely worth trying... just don't over cook the fish :)

Pan Seared Cod with Garlic Dill Sauce
Adapted from Angie's Recipes
- Serves 2 -
Printable Recipe 
2 cod fillets
lemon juice
salt and pepper
cayenne pepper
For the sauce -
2 Tablespoons sour cream
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Drizzle a little lemon juice over both fillets.  Season both sides with salt, pepper and cayenne.

In a small bowl, mix together all the ingredients for the sauce until well combined.  Cover and set aside.

Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and play over medium heat.  Once heated, add the cod and cover.  Allow to cook for 5 minutes.  Remove cover, once the fish is slightly browned, flip and continue to cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, another 5-10 minutes (depending on how thick your pieces are).  Remove from skillet immediately.  Serve with sauce and enjoy.

This really does sound good, Jenn. I'd like to try to make this for dinner tonight, or at least some time this week. I haven't had cod for a while and I love it! And always appreciate your unpoison sauces.

My last go-round with cod was with frozen filets. Never can get those quite right. Only fresh is best. Gosh, I'm sitting here with fresh dill in the fridge and no plan ...

I've tried to like cod and halibut, but find there are many other fishes I greatly prefer, so I'm sticking with them. Your great sauces would fix about anything.

The cod pairs so well with flavourful garlic dill sauce!

My husband absolutely loves anything to do with dill. We are going to HAVE to try this sauce.

I've got a cod filet in the freezer that I need to dig out and use. This sauce sounds perfect. Not too overwhelming for a light and delicate fish.
