Buttered Cod in Skillet. Ready in under 15 minutes and soo good!. ValentinasCorner.com

My friends, this buttered cod in skillet recipe will become a family favorite. My children, who do not like fish, love this recipe. Can I just tell you how simple the recipe is? Seriously, takes like 5 minute prep time and about 5-6 minute cook time and whallaaa, you have yourself a super delicious and healthy dinner (well minus the butter, hehe). The cod become so flakey and juicy and has so much flavor, drizzled with some fresh lemon juice. Great over egg noodles, homemade bread and salad. My kids’ favorite part? Taking bread and dipping into the butter that’s in the skillet. Oh so good!

Note:* If using frozen cod, completely thaw before using.
