Cod recipe and its virgin sauce

Fish often have different names depending on where they are caught or the type of fish. Cod is no exception to this rule, as it is called cod when dried and salted.


  • 4 cod fillets
  • 1 sheet of baking paper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 raw orange
  • Salt, pepper Espelette

Place cod on absorbent paper to dry.

Salt it and make a small incision in the skin.

Place it on baking paper in a frying pan with a drop of olive oil over high heat. (baking paper keeps the fish from sticking to the pan)

When the skin is crispy, carefully flip the cod.

Deglaze with orange juice.

Remove from heat, cover with a lid to let the momentum of heat and orange steam cook the fish.

Chef’s trick : Place the fish on the wire rack, covering it with aluminum foil to drain any remaining water.
