Roasted Cod with Chanterelles

  • Serves

    serves 4


The chanterelle mixture may be prepared a day in advance.


  • 6 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. (about 7 cups) fresh chanterelles, trimmed and quartered
  • 2 large shallots, peeled and minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme leaves, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. aged sherry vinegar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 8-oz. fresh center-cut cod filets


Step 1

Heat 4 tbsp. of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are tender and any liquid has evaporated, 10-15 minutes. Add shallots, garlic, thyme, and 2 tbsp. of the vinegar. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and cook for 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly, then add the remaining 1 tbsp. vinegar. Mix well. Transfer mushrooms to a bowl and set aside for 1 hour to allow flavors to develop.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 375°. Brush cod filets with 1 tbsp. of the oil, then generously season with salt and pepper. Heat butter and the remaining 1 tbsp. oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Sear cod until a good browned crust has formed, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer skillet to the oven and roast cod until cooked through, another 10-15 minutes.

Step 3

Transfer cod to a platter and spoon room-temperature mushrooms and their juices on top. Garnish with extra sprigs of thyme, if you like.
