Isn’t this Sautéed Cod Fish with Tomato Basil Chutney and Sautéed Spinach pretty?

Sautéed Cod Fish is a simple, tasty main dish.

Sautéed Cod Fish is one of my favorite ways to eat fish. Cod is a mild white fish that has a “meatier” texture. It’s not as “meat-like” as swordfish (which has the texture of beef steak), but it is a little thicker and more compact than tilapia or orange roughy. This recipe works for any fish you like and sautéing the fish takes about 12 minutes. What’s your favorite?

Food Pairings

Don and I thought this whole meal—Sautéed Cod, Tomato Basil Chutney and Sautéed Spinach—was stupendous. Cod by itself is satisfying and delicious, but adding these two sides put it over the top. Although I have not posted a Sautèed Spinach recipe, you make it just the way you make Wilted Kale.

This whole meal took me about 35 minutes. It may take you a bit longer if you aren’t used to putting a meal together, but it’s pretty simple. First, make the chutney and set it aside. Then start the Sautéed Cod. After you flip the cod to the second side, add the spinach to the pan and wait until it wilts slightly. Take it out before it darkens. You will have a delightfully beautiful meal.

What You Need

This recipe requires a sauté pan and a spatula. If you don’t have a great set of pans, this should be your first purchase. Why be frustrated in the kitchen? And remember if you have nonstick pans, you will need the proper utensils (no metal!) when you use your pans.
