Garlic Herb Butter Cod
Adding some olive oil to the butter cuts back on saturated fat but still provides a buttery rich flavor along with the fresh herbs..
Prepare the garlic-herb butter by combining all ingredients in a microwave-safe dish and warm on low power until butter is melted.
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 filet 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.
Remove from heat and transfer fillets to individual serving plates. Drizzle with melted herb butter and garnish with some fresh chopped parsley and a squirt of fresh lemon juice.
Serve immediately with some oven-roasted asparagus tossed with remaining herb butter from skillet or your choice of sides. Enjoy!
