Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes
1/2 cup water
2 pounds frozen or fresh peas, blanched
1 package (0.6-0.7 ounces) fresh mint, leaves only
salt, to taste
4 Alaska cod fillets (4-6 ounces each), fresh, frozen or thawed
1 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
Add water, peas and mint to blender or food processor; season with salt. Puree until almost smooth. Cover and keep warm.
If frozen, rinse ice glaze from cod under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat heavy, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of fillets with olive oil.
In heated skillet, cook cod, uncovered, about 3-4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking. Turn cod over and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6-9 minutes for frozen cod or 3-4 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook until fish is opaque throughout.
To serve, spoon pea puree onto 4 plates. Top each with cod fillet and serve immediately.
