Sailboat Galley – Pan Fried Cod with Green Asparagus

Pan Fried Cod with Green Asparagus flesh will be opaque white and flake easily when pressed with a fork. Overcooking cod will make it tough and dry since more moisture evaporates from the fish as its internal temperature rises. Asparagus spears are the young shoots of the asparagus plant. Green asparagus gets its bright green color because it grows above ground and has therefore seen the sun.

It’s low in calories and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate, and vitamins A, C, and K. Additionally, eating asparagus has a number of potential health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion, healthy pregnancy outcomes, and lower blood pressure.

Cod is a low-fat source of protein, making it an excellent choice for people who would like to reduce their fat intake and improve their heart health. Cod also contains a significant amount of iodine, which is an important mineral for thyroid function.

How to prepare it:

  • Heat a medium sized frying pan, add 1 tablespoon of the oil and fry the pieces of sobrasada sausage. Use a fork to break the sobrasada sausage into a mince and fry for 3 minutes until crispy, set aside.
  • To prepare the green asparagus, cook them in salted boiling water for 2 minutes, drain and cool down under cold running water. Pat dry them in some kitchen paper and cook in a hot frying pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil for 2 minutes on each side. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm.
  • In a non-stick frying pan, heat the remaining oil until hot and smoky, season the cod with salt and place it in the pan skin-side down. Cook for 2–3 minutes until the skin is nicely golden and crisp. Carefully turn the cod over and cook for a further 2–3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the loin. Add the butter during the last minute of cooking and once melted, baste the cod with the help of a spoon. The fish is cooked when the flesh becomes opaque.
  • To serve the dish, spread the sobrasada sausage on a warm plate, spoon the fried asparagus on the sausage and top with a piece of fried cod loin, drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil and serve.
