Of course, we all love traditional Fish and Chips, like in this recipe.  However, pan frying cod is another option that is delectable and easy. Simply season your fish with your favorite spices or even just salt and pepper, then fry it in olive oil. After the fish is done, add a little lemon and butter. The whole thing takes about 15 minutes.
