Pan-Fried Cod with Butter Soy Sauce

Pan-Fried Cod with Butter Soy Sauce

No flour is used in this recipe -- just butter and soy sauce! Delicious made with squid, scallops or shimeji mushrooms too. Please use fresh, unsalted cod.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Fresh cod (unsalted)
2 slices
20 g (approximately)
Soy sauce
2 tablespoons


1. Note: Cod falls apart easily. So use a spatula and be careful when you flip it over.
2. Heat up a frying pan and spread some oil in it. Pan fry the cod filets.
3. Flip them over when golden brown, and fry the other side too.
4. When both sides are browned and the fish is cooked through, add the butter.
5. When the butter has melted add the soy sauce. Coat both sides of the fish in the sauce, and it's done.
6. Transfer to serving plates, spoon the sauce over and enjoy. If you have some daikon radish sprouts or chopped green onions for garnish, it will look prettier.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love this combination of flavors for all kinds of seafood, including squid. My mother used to make this for me when I was growing up.
