This Pan fried Cod with Capers and Samphire is a very simple recipe. Far from any gratuitous sophistication. Here we treat the Cod delicately and without drowning it in a sauce. This dish is a tribute to the richness of Brittany but also Portugal. Cod, butter and Samphire, the best !


First, here is the list of the different ingredients you will need to prepare this Pan fried Cod with Capers and Samphire that Serves 4                             

  • 1 cup (200 g) fresh Samphire
  • 4 Tbsp capers
  • 4 Cod fillets with skin
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

Now, here are the different steps you will need to follow to make the Pan fried Cod with Capers and Samphire with a Preparation and Cooking Time of 25 minutes total

Put a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and get it hot. Add the butter. Put the fillets skin-side down and cook for 4 or 5 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish – you want the skin to go crispy like crackling. Next, add the capers, and parsley. As soon as they’re finished, remove to a plate using a flexible spatula. Squeeze over a little lemon juice and a turn of freshly ground black pepper. Allow to rest for 2-3 minutes.

While the cod is cooking, heat a small saucepan half filled with water and when boiling, add the washed Samphire. Turn down the heat and blench for 2-3 minutes. Drain, then, add them to the fish plate nicely. Serve on a large plate, with some pan-fried potatoes if you wish and like I did and… Bon Appétit !
