Millet is an ancient grain that is widely used in parts of Asia and Africa, particularly areas with a very hot climate. Millet doesn't have a strong flavor; it has a hint of sweetness, and perhaps a bit of nuttiness, but it's much like white rice and quinoa in that it takes on the profile of the ingredients that are cooked with it.-Jen
2 (5oz) Black Cod fillets
1/4 cup Millet (ground to a powder in a spice grinder)
1/4 tsp Paprika (or use Cayenne if you like some heat)
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
2-3 Tbsp Olive oil
Squeeze of a Lemon
- Mix the ground millet, paprika and salt in a mixing bowl.
- Season the black cod fillets with salt and pepper.
- Dredge the black cod fillets in the ground millet mix.
- Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, add the fillets and fry them for 4-5 minutes per side. The fish is cooked when it flakes easily. Remove the fillets from the pan and drizzle with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
