For the fish you'll need: (Start with fresh fish selection) Two ½ pound fillets of cod, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 2 tbsp olive oil How to make:
Salt and pepper each side of the fish. Add oil to sauté pan (medium high heat). Sear each side of the fish for 1-2 minutes on each side and remove from pan. For the Sauce you'll need: 2 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp ginger slices, 2 Tbsp boiler onions diced, 1 Tbsp finely chopped garlic, ½ - 1 jalapeno thinly sliced, 2 tsp lemon zest, 2 tsp orange zest, ½ tsp red chili flakes, 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro chopped
How to make: Add butter to pan so it starts to melt. Add ginger, onion, garlic, jalapeno, lemon zest, orange zest, chili flakes and cilantro to pan. Sauté ingredients for 5 minutes on medium-high heat, while stirring. Now it’s time to add the liquids.
