Cod With Coriander Seed
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Briefly searing the cod gives it a nice golden crust and helps the fish keep its shape while cooking.
Yield: Serves 4
- Using mortar and pestle, grind coriander seeds, salt and garlic into a coarse paste. Add lemon zest and chili flakes and grind to release oils. Add oregano leaves, lemon juice oil, and grind gently to bruise oregano leaves.
- Preheat oven to 450ºF
- On stovetop, preheat cast-iron pan over high heat. Add 1 tbsp oil to pan and heat until smoking. Season cod loins with salt and pepper, then sear on one side for 2 minutes to form crust.
- Transfer cod to parchment-lined baking sheet, crust-side-up. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes until fish flakes easily and is opaque. For last minute of baking, spoon coriander vinaigrette evenly over fish.
