  • Set up

    Cut the cod fillets into 6 or 8 pieces. Chop the French shallots. Peel and chop the garlic. Cut the butter in small cubes. Quarters the tomatoes, then empty them, keep the flesh in a bowl.

  • Garlic tomatoes

    Dice the tomatoes, then cook them in a hot pan with knob of butter and olive oil, make sure you don't over cook them, add the chopped garlic, salt and pepper to taste.

  • Cod fillets

    Season the cod then sear them in a hot pan with oil and butter. Place them on a baking sheet, then bake them in the oven for about 4 minutes.

  • White butter sauce

    In a saucepan combine, the shallots, the white wine and the vinegar then bring to a boil. When the reduction reaches the consistency of a wet mash, remove from the heat. Let it cool down then start incorporating the cubes of butter, one by one, while whisking. Put it back on the heat to keep the temperature high enough to be melting the butter very slowly. Once you have obtained a creamy texture, adjust the seasoning. You can pass the sauce through a sieve if you do not wish to keep the garnishes.

In this recipe you can replace the cod by any kind of white fish. The white butter sauce goes perfectly with any poached fish.
