  • 1 tablespoon finely grated blood-orange zest
  • 10 cilantro stems
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 6 medium Belgian endives, halved lengthwise
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup fresh blood-orange juice
  • 15 coriander seeds, coarsely crushed
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Six 6-ounce skinless cod fillets
  • Cayenne pepper

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a small saucepan of boiling water, blanch the zest for 1 minute; drain. Tie the cilantro stems and bay leaf into a bundle.

  2. Melt 4 tablespoons of the butter in a large ovenproof skillet. Add the endives, cut side down, and season with salt and pepper. Add the juice, zest, cilantro bundle, coriander seeds and sugar and bring to a boil. Press a round of parchment on top, cover with a lid and braise in the oven for 30 minutes, or until very tender.

  3. Transfer the endives to a platter. Strain the braising liquid into a glass measuring cup. In the same skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the endives, cut side down, and cook over moderately high heat until browned, 4 minutes. Turn the endives, add 1/2 cup of the braising liquid and cook, shaking the pan until the liquid is reduced to a glaze, 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. In each of 2 large skillets, melt 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter in 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the cod with salt and cayenne. Add 3 of the cod fillets to each skillet and cook over moderately high heat until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Set a piece of cod on each plate and arrange 2 endive halves alongside. Drizzle the remaining glaze over the fish and serve.

Suggested Pairing

A full yet crisp and fruity Alsace Pinot Blanc with bitter notes will echo the rich, tart and bitter flavors here.
