Garlic Herb Butter Ingredients:

  • 6 tbsp Unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 tsp Garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp Fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp Fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt

Remaining Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp Olive oil, extra virgin
  • 6 4-oz. Atlantic cod fillets
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish


  • Prepare the garlic-herb butter by combining all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the garlic, herbs, and salt are evenly distributed throughout the softened butter. 
  • Transfer the butter mixture to the center of a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a log. Wrap tightly and place inside the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to become firm. 
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat cod filets dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and black pepper, to taste. 
  • Add filets to hot skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they become golden brown. Reduce heat to medium and carefully flip each fillet. Top each fillet with an equal amount of herb butter and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes. While cooking, spoon the herb butter back over the filets as it melts.
  • Remove from heat and transfer fillets to individual serving plates. Drizzle with melted herb butter and garnish with some fresh chopped parsley, if desired. 
  • Serve immediately with some oven-roasted asparagus tossed with remaining herb butter from the skillet or your choice of sides. Enjoy!
