Low carb Garlic Herb Butter Cod

I love to prepare healthy and tasty dishes for my family. Unfortunately sometimes I don’t have much free time to spend in the kitchen. On days like these I often cook fish. This recipe of cod with garlic butter only takes about 20 minutes to prepare and you have delicious dinner. You can swap cod for any white fish you have on hand. Serve with Roasted Parmesan Asparagus.

Ingredients:
Garlic Herb Butter
  • 6 TBSP. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ tsp. garlic, finely minced
  • 1 tsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
  • ¼ tsp. sea salt
Remaining Ingredients:
  • 2 TBSP. extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 4-oz. Atlantic cod fillets
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh chopped parsley, for garnish
Instructions for Low Carb Cod with Garlic Herb Butter:
  1. Prepare the garlic-herb butter by combining all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until the garlic, herbs, and salt are evenly distributed throughout the softened butter.
  2. Transfer the butter mixture to the center of a sheet of plastic wrap and form into a log. Wrap tightly and place inside the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes to become firm.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat cod filets dry with a paper towel and season both sides with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  4. Add filets to hot skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until they become golden brown. Reduce heat to medium and carefully flip each fillet. Top each filet with an equal amount of herb butter and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes. While cooking, spoon the herb butter back over the filets as it melts.
  5. Remove from heat and transfer fillets to individual serving plates. Drizzle with melted herb butter and garnish with some fresh chopped parsley, if desired.
  6. Serve immediately with some oven-roasted asparagus tossed with remaining herb butter from skillet or your choice of sides. Enjoy!
