Quick Fry Tomcod


  • Use a cast iron skillet and heat over high heat.
  • Melt butter (200 ml for a 10-inch skillet).
  • Put in the fish (it can be partially frozen) but it absolutely must be covered with flour, and then cook on both sides.

  5. Cooking tomcod this way will not soften or break while cooking.
  6. Serve the fried fish with tartar sauce and lemon juice.
  7. Choose a simple and easy drinking wine. Red wine goes well with this meal.
  8. Frying is one of the exceptions where you don’t have to serve a white wine with fish. Beer also pairs well with this dish.
