Crispy Cod with Sage Butter

  • 1 pound cod fillets
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 sage leaves
  1. Rinse and pat dry the cod fillets. Slice them into 3 inch pieces. Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Set up an assembly line. Place the flour in one bowl. Beat the eggs in another bowl and place the bread crumbs in the third bowl.
  3. Dredge a piece of fish into the flour then the egg and then press into the bread crumbs. Repeat until all fish are coated.
  4. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Drop a piece of panko bread crumbs into the oil and if it sizzles the oil is hot enough. Cook fish 5 - 7 minutes or until golden brown on each side.
  5. While fish is cooking, melt butter over low heat. Once butter is melted add sage leaves. Continue to cook until sage leaves brown slightly. Low heat is the key here, you want to be careful not to burn the butter.
  6. Once fish is cooked through, transfer to a plate and spoon sage butter over the top. Serve.
