Unbelievably delicious blackened cod pan seared to perfection with garlic herb tomatoes, white beans and Parmesan, finished with a luscious Beurre Blanc sauce. Super easy and quick dinner recipe.
Fresh tomatoes that are marinated in olive oil with tons of fresh herbs like basil, parsley and oregano oh and don’t forget loads of garlic. We added some white navy beans for added protein and fiber. Simple ingredients that make for a delicious fresh and very fragrant dinner.
We decided to get fancy and serve the blackened cod with a beurre blanc sauce. The dish doesn’t really need a sauce, you can warm the marinated tomatoes in the juices and add a splash of broth and butter and this make for a delicious sauce you can dip some crusty bread into. The Beurre Blanc sauce is simply a white wine butter sauce, incredibly easy to make and goes well with fish and seafood.
To make the sauce you simply reduce a small amount of white wine, can use cooking wine with white wine vinegar, shallots and butter. Whisk continuously until the sauce is white and luscious then strain the shallots for a smooth sauce.
Blackening seasoning is easy to make, you most likely have what you need in your spice cabinet, which is smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper, kosher salt, brown sugar, cayenne, basil, thyme and oregano. You can always buy a store-bought blackened seasoning prepackaged to make things easier if this is something you use often to season your proteins.
Simple deliciously elevated cod dish perfect for lighter weeknight meals.
