Millet Crusted Pan Fried Black Cod

Millet Crusted Pan Fried Black Cod
Cook / Prep Time: 25 min

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


Serves 2

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.
