This recipe is from Chef Eric Ripert of New York City's Le Bernardin, the best fish restaurant in New York, America and arguably even the world. He is often called a seafood genius by critics and customers alike. This quick and easy meal is as fabulous as the ones served at Le Bernardin...without the sticker shock.
The cod cooks simply in a film of oil until it browns on the surface and is barely cooked through. The trick is to stop cooking when the fish is still slightly raw at the center, then let it stand for two or three minutes to finish cooking in its own heat. All the flavor comes from the natural character of the fish, the sauce and the garnishes. Adjust heat to your tastes.
Serve with a White Bordeaux or Pinot Blanc
