Turkish Spiced Cod


Ingredients:
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
Directions:
 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.

* I got my  Turkish seasoning  from http://www.penzeys.com/
