Pan-Fried Cod Fish With Butter Sauce

During our last shopping at Jusco, Queensbay Mall, hubby spotted the fresh Cod fish (not frozen). He requested the Chef at home (me lah of course!) to cook the Cod fish for our meal. *Wink wink*. The decision was on me. But, how could I resist to savor the flaky white flesh Cod fish?

Instead of steaming the fish fillet, I cook it another way - the Western style. So, I gathered some fresh ingredients like asparagus, button mushroom, and crunchy baby capsicums for the salad and side dish.

Although this is the fresh Cod fish, but it's definitely not as fresh as the one we tasted in Australia. What to do? Just wonder if the frozen Cod fish is the better choice? Ended up, hubby finished almost all the fish, and I prefer to munch on the button mushroom and fresh veggies. :)

tigerfish, just first time try the crunchy baby capsicum, and I fall in love with it. Sweet, crunchy and smell good!

Juliana, as you can see, I always cook simple meal at home.

daphne, I wish I can have fresh cod fish like what I tried in Perth. Here, can't get such good quality of fresh cod.

Shell, totally agree with you.

What a colourful and wholesome meal! I usually pan-fry my cod with miso or just steam it with sauce. Must try out your recipe. ;)
