Skillet Cod served with a cilantro lime butter is a quick, easy, and diet friendly weeknight meal that you can feed your family.
I love it when I find a new recipe that is really super yummy and this cod dish is just that! Of course, for me, the fact the recipe had cilantro in it is what intrigued me to begin with. Grumpy, who thinks I am infatuated with cilantro (well, I am!) even liked the butter. This was quick, easy and a great weeknight dinner.
Grumpy’s favorite fish is cod, so I used cod in this recipe although you could use any mild white fish such as flounder or tilapia. If you like the flavors of cumin, cilantro, and lime, you will love this recipe!
