I still can't get over how fresh the fish is on Tuesday's at the Mouton-Duvernet Market. This cod smelled of nothing but the sea.
A hot skillet, a pat of butter, a smattering of chopped shallots and chives, a squeeze of fresh lemon and dinner was done.
For a hearty and delicious autumn meal, serve this fish with a simple green salad and a bowl of Potato Leek Soup or a generous scoop of Gratin Dauphinois (Potato Gratin). And if you're a cod lover like me, don't miss this Parmesan Baked Cod recipe.
