Cod in the cast iron? No problem.
Simple. Delicious. Healthy.
Cast Iron Cod with Caramelized Onions
4 Cod fillets
Salt and Pepper
1 large onion sliced
Cast iron pan
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Season Cod fillets with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. Set aside until ready to blacken. Slice onions for sauteing. Preheat cast iron skillet over medium high heat adding about 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the onions and season with a little salt and pepper sauteing onions until nice and caramelized. When onions are golden to just the way you like them remove them from cast iron and set aside in a bowl.
Bring cast iron back up to Medium high heat, adding 2-3 tablespoons of oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Add the pieces of fish. Do not disturb, let them fry for about 3-4 minutes on the first side, flipping to the other side for about 2 minutes. the fish should be nice and crusty. At this point add the caramelized onions back to the cast iron smothering the cod fillets with the onions. Place the cast iron in the preheated 400 degrees oven for about 5 minutes or until fish is no longer opaque. I served this with a wild rice and roasted brussel spouts. the sauce that is left in the pan is great spooned over the rice.
That's it. Super simple. So easy your kid can make it.
