How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°.Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 2

Step 3

Cook bacon in a large cast iron or ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until crisp; remove bacon, and drain on paper towels, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings in skillet. Add remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil to skillet over medium-high heat; add cod fillet, and cook 1 minute on each side.

Step 4

Spoon reserved potatoes around cod; bake 3 minutes.

Remove from oven, and spread reserved butter mixture over fish. Return to oven; bake 5 more minutes or just until fish flakes with a fork and is opaque in the center. Sprinkle with cooked bacon; garnish, if desired. Serve immediately.
