Recipe: Merluzzo alla Vicentina

Cod, Vicentina Style, or Merluzzo alla Vicentina: Cod with a little onion and a little milk: one of the most classic north Italian fish recipes.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings Cod Vicentina Style


  • 1 pound (500 g) cod fillets, either fresh or frozen
  • Flour, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 a small onion, minced
  • A tablespoon of unsalted butter or olive oil
  • About a half cup of milk
  • Minced parsley as a garnish


If the fillets were frozen, thaw them.

Sauté the onion in the oil or butter until it begins to brown. Meanwhile, flour the fillets well. Brown the fillets on both sides, then add enough milk to partially cover them, and simmer them for 6-7 minutes. Remove the fillets to a platter and reduce the sauce. Pour the sauce over the fish, garnish it with the parsley, and serve.
