DIRECTIONS

  • In a shallow bowl, mix oil, vinegar, pepper, basil/thyme and garlic.
  • Coat both sides of fillets.
  • Break bay leaves into 3-4 pieces, press onto both sides of fillets.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight (overnight is better!) Remove bay leaves and discard extra marinade.
  • Sprinkle with salt and cook over medium high heat in large skillet (nonstick is best).
  • For example: a thick cod fillet will need about 4 minutes per side, thin long fillets 2-3 minutes/side.
  • Drippings in the pan are great on pasta--deglaze pan by adding a bit more red wine vinegar (or just WINE!) and toss with freshly cooked (not rinsed!) warm pasta.
