Seared Cod with White Wine Cherry Tomato Reduction

Seared Cod with White Wine Cherry Tomato Reduction

Posted 2017-01-29 by Oxford Explorerfollow
If you're looking for a seafood recipe with plenty of flavour but not too heavy, then this is perfect. The delicate cod is seared in a pan but finished off in the oven. Any white fleshed fish would work in this recipe so use what's local to you.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients
2 fillets cod
1/4 tsp chilli flakes
2 cloves garlic, crushed
150 g cherry tomatoes
A little olive oil for frying
50 ml white wine
1/4 tsp lemon zest
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
Small handful fresh basil
Freshly ground salt & pepper

Method
  • Preheat oven to 180 c.
  • Fry the chilli flakes and garlic in a little olive oil for a minute.
  • Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and then add to the frying pan. Continue to cook for around 10 minutes until the tomatoes are soft but still holding their shape.



  • Finely dice the basil and add to the pan.
  • Add in the wine, lemon zest and lemon juice and simmer for a few minutes until the wine sauce has reduced, concentrating all the flavours.
  • Set aside the wine and cherry tomato sauce.



  • A little oil to a clean, non stick frying pan (with ovenproof handle) over a medium heat.
  • Season the cod with salt and pepper and place seasoned side down in the frying pan. Now you can easily season the other side without overworking the fish.
  • Cook for a 3-4 minutes.




  • Flip over the fillets, pour over the wine and cherry tomato reduction and then place in the oven for a couple of minutes to finish off.



  • This dish is versatile enough to be served with almost any side dish. I kept it simple with new potatoes and steamed broccoli.
