Black Cod -French Style
1 lb. black cod, boneless and skinless
1 shallot, diced
2-6 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of minced garlic
2-3 teaspoons Herbs de Provence
4-5 tablespoons of shredded Swiss or Gruyère cheese
In a skillet heat 2 tablespoons of butter and the shallot. Allow the flavors to meld for a few minutes on medium heat, add garlic and stir for another minute, then add fish and herbs and cook on low to medium low. Add more butter as needed; the goal is to have a bit of a sauce.
When fish is completely cooked, transfer to a buttered baking dish top with cheese and dot with a couple of very small pieces of butter, broil until cheese is golden brown and bubbly.
Salt and pepper to taste.
