Serves 4


    1 lb atlantic cod filets
    1 tsp ground black pepper
    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1/4 cup white wine
    1 small bunch fresh parsley (for garnish)
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    1 fresh lemon, halved or quartered
    1/4 cup flour
    1/4 tsp sea salt
    2 tbsp canola oil
    2 tbsp balsamic capers
    2 tbsp butter


    Rinse and pat dry the cod filets.
    Brush the filets with olive oil.
    Mix the flour, sea salt and ground black pepper in a small mixing bowl.
    Using medium-high heat, heat the canola oil to shimmering in a large, well-seasoned cast iron skillet.
    Coat the filets with the seasoned flour.  Reduce the heat under the skillet to medium and immediately place the cod filets in the hot oil.
    Fry the filets for about 4 minutes on each side, then transfer to dinner plates.
    Add the white wine, capers, lemon juice and butter to the skillet while scraping the browned cod remains in the skillet as the wine bubbles.  Continue heating and stirring until the sauce is reduced to a light gravy texture.
    Spoon the sauce over the filets, garnish with the fresh parsley and serve with a fresh steamed vegetable.
