Spiced Cod With Corn 5/5 (1)

medium prep time 10 mins | cook time 15 mins | SERVINGS 4


    5 Tbsp. unsalted butter

    2 garlic cloves, crushed

    1½ tsp. coriander seeds

    ¾ tsp. cumin seeds

     ¾ tsp. mild red pepper flakes or ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

    ½ tsp. ground turmeric

    Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper

    1 tsp. soy sauce

    La Fe Corn (about 3 cups)

    4 (5–6-oz.) cod or other flaky whitefish fillets

    Mint leaves and toasted sesame seeds (for serving)



    Melt butter in a large skillet with a lid over medium heat. Add garlic, coriander seeds, and cumin seeds and cook, swirling pan often until butter is foaming and spices are very fragrant, about 2 minutes (reduce heat if butter is starting to brown). Add red pepper flakes, turmeric, a big pinch of salt, and several grinds of pepper. Cook, swirling pan, until very fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add ½ cup water (careful, it may spatter a bit), then soy sauce.


    Add corn to skillet. Season fish lightly with salt and nestle into corn and broth; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently until fish flakes easily with a fork, 7–9 minutes.


    Divide fish among bowls. Taste broth and season with more salt if needed. Divide corn and broth among bowls and top with mint and sesame seeds.
