  • About

The sauce in this recipe is enriched and finished with extra virgin olive oil instead of cream or butter. Mashed potatoes are a very good partner for this dish.


  • 4 cod cutlets, 6–8 oz / 170–230 g each
  • salt


Lightly season the fish, squeeze on some lemon or orange juice, and brush with olive oil. Allow it to stand for 10–15 minutes while you start making the sauce. Cut the garlic cloves into two or three pieces and put in a small saucepan with 2–3 tablespoons water. Simmer until the garlic is tender. St
