Cod fillet

Recipe: Cod loin

Recipe for cod back in yellow wine, I love this wine which is not unanimous, but it is a local cru, directly from Franche Comté. The cod backs were very generous, not always easy to find plump backs, here cooking in butter and olive oil, without touching the fish, just sprinkling with the hot fat. I particularly like cod, its taste and texture, but as always, be careful not to overcook it. Cod back with a yellow wine and leek sauce, worthy of this fish. We loved this fish topped with a beautiful wine-colored sauce. I accompanied it with a small glass of yellow wine, but the girls still have a hard time with this wine, they often like sweeter wines.
