Recipe: Merluzzo Dorato (Fried Cod)

Merluzzo Dorato (Fried Cod)

Here is a simple yet satisfying recipe:

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 4 servings fried cod


  • 1 pound (500 g) cod fillets, either fresh or frozen
  • Flour, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste
  • An egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2-3 leaves sage
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, or more, to taste
  • Lemon wedges
  • Sprigs of parsley


If the fish is frozen, thaw it.

Flour the fillets and dredge them in the beaten egg. Meanwhile, heat the butter and sage. Sauté the fillets over a brisk flame for six minutes, turning them after three. Sprinkle them with the lemon juice, and transfer them to a serving platter, spooning the pan juices over them. Garnish the fish with the parsley, and serve it, with the lemon wedges on the side.
