Tips

  • To ensure crispy skin on your pan fried cod, dry the fillets with kitchen paper towel before seasoning them with salt. Light oil into the frying pan, ensure hot enough before adding the cod fillets.

  • For very thick cod fillet, cook skin-side down in the pan until the skin is golden, then turn over and finish cooking in an oven preheated to 180°C for 5 minutes.
