Turkish Spiced Cod
2 pounds Cod fish fillets
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper diced
2 teaspoons Turkish seasoning
Salt and pepper to taste
Remove any pin bones from the fillets and pat them dry. Salt the fish fillets well and set them aside. Heat the olive oil, 1 teaspoon Turkish seasoning and diced peppers in a saute pan and set it over medium heat for 2 minutes . After 2 minutes place the fish fillets on top of the peppers and cook undisturbed for 90 seconds.
When you see the bottom of the fish fillets turn opaque, tilt the pan and using a large spoon baste the tops of the fish with the hot oil and season with 1 more teaspoon of Turkish seasoning and spoon some of the peppers on top of the fish. Constantly baste top of the fish with oil until the top of the fillets begin to flake, about 3 minutes.
Cover pad with the lid and cook for 90 seconds. Turn off the heat
Put a fish fillet on everyone's plate. Spoon out some peppers and sauce to pour over the fish and serve.
