Cod the Way You Want it

I want fish. Now if you knew me this statement may be surprising. I used to hate fish for about the first 22 years of life. But in the last few months I've learned to like, no actually maybe love fish. At first I said, good, but I'm not sure I'll ever want it, like crave it and order it or make it for myself. But this has all of the sudden changes. I love fish and I want it. So we made some for dinner. Ben and I like different spices and tastes, so usually making two separate recipes is impossible, but putting different spices on to the pieces of cod and placing them both in a pan with some oil, lemon and white wine, made this very possible.

3/4 lbs Cod
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Lemon
1/4 cup White Wine

1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
Sprinkling Re Pepper Flakes

1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp mixed Italian seasonings (Rosemary, Thyme, Garlic, etc.)
1/2 the Zest of a Lemon

In a sautee pan heat oil on medium low, while heating season the cod (to your liking) place in pan (non seasoned side down) add in wine and squeeze the juice of half of your lemon on top. Let fish cook until the top has turned white and flakes, which means that the fish has cooked. The majority of the wine, and lemon liquid will have evaporated.

We had the fish with a side of lemon roasted asparagus and broccoli. Good, healthy, simple and cod just the way you like it.
