This is a wonderfully light main course. The fish is light and delicate and the lemon emulsion adds a rich full lemony flavor that compliments any green veggies, rice, or potatoes beautifully!



Lemon Emulsion Sauce



  • Preheat the oven to 380°.
  • Squeeze fresh lemon juice over both sides of the cod.
  • Grind fresh pepper and sprinkle with Maldon salt on both sides.
  • Drizzle with 2 Tbsp of lemon grapeseed oil and allow to marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Add 1 Tbsp of lemon oil to the pan and heat on high then add fish fillets. Sauté 2 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and let rest for 30 seconds (best if on a cold surface to release the fillet from the pan).
  • Turn the fish over and return to heat. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Place the pan in the oven and cook for 7 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest for 2 minutes and then serve on warm plates.

Lemon Emulsion Sauce

  • Combine all ingredients in shallow sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer to reduce. About 3 minutes.
  • Pour over fish, chicken or rice.


Can substitute Halibut, Sea Bass or any white light fish.
We always use Maldon salt for a fuller taste profile – it’s just the best! Available at Specialty Food stores.
