  • 4 shallots chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) dry vermouth preferably Noilly-Pratt

Remove any bones remaining in cod. Rinse fish in cold water and dry with paper towels. Place fillets on a plate and season with salt and pepper.

Heat some oil and butter in a non-stick frying pan. Carefully place fillets in pan and cook for 4 minutes. Turn over with a slotted spatula and cook for 3 more minutes, or until golden brown. Remove to a serving plate and keep warm.

Heat a little oil and a little butter, then sauté shallot for 1 minute. Add vermouth and allow liquid to reduce by half. Blend in cream and Canadian Migneron cheese, then simmer for 3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and herbs. Pour sauce over fish, garnish with parsley sprigs and serve with broiled tomatoes.
