  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield 4 servings


  • 4 cod filets, about 6 ounces a piece
  • All purpose flour for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt and pepper


Wash the cod and pat it dry.  Salt the fish and lightly dust it with flour.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet.  Sauté the cod over moderately high heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until done.

Transfer to a warm plate with a wide spatula.  Add the wine to the pan and increase the heat to high.  Allow the liquid to boil and reduce.

Pour in the stock and boil for about 2 minutes as it slightly thickens.  Add the lemon juice and drained capers and stir for about 1 minute.  Salt and pepper to taste.

Return the cod to the pan and heat through for about 1 minute.

Plate the cod and spoon sauce over it.  Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
