I got some turmeric salt because I seem to be obsessed with turmeric lately. I wasn't clear how I was going to use it. I was making a Mediterranean hummus toast and got the cod out to go with it, but I wasn't sure on seasoning. And there was my turmeric salt! Very simply seasoned, basted with butter and lemon, this fish would go with a lot of different side dishes. And it cooks very quickly with not a lot of prep time.

How to Make Turmeric Lemon Butter Basted Cod

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse fish and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Sprinkle turmeric salt and pepper on fish, flip and do the same on the other side.
  3. Over medium heat, melt the butter in a sauce pan large enough to hold both pieces of fish.
  4. Add lemon juice to the butter when melted.
  5. When the pan is hot, add both pieces of fish. Tip the pan a little to puddle up some of the butter. Baste both pieces of fish with the butter.
  6. Cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. You want some nice browning on the fish.
  7. Baste once more and turn fish to the other side.
  8. Tip the pan and baste the fish several times with the butter. Cook another few minutes until desired doneness, basting every 30 seconds or so.
  9. Flip fish one more time, baste several times with butter.
  10. Plate. Garnish with parsley if desired.
