Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cornstarch, paprika, kosher salt, white pepper, and cayenne (if using) in a plate. Pat fish dry with paper towels. Coat fish on all sides with the seasoning mix.

  • Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook until garlic is fragrant but not brown, about 30 seconds. Add quartered mushrooms and a pinch of salt; cook until mushrooms are lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Remove mushrooms from skillet. If pan is dry, add a tablespoon of additional olive oil.

  • Increase heat to medium high. Gently place fish into skillet in a single layer. Sear until a crust forms on the bottom, about 5 minutes. Turn the fish and sear the other side for about 4 minutes. Remove fish from pan.

  • Reduce heat to medium low. Return the mushrooms to the skillet along with the chopped green onions; stir. Pour in the Classico Creamy Alfredo Sauce and heat for 4 minutes but do not bring to a boil. Place the fish into the sauce. Reduce heat to low to keep warm.

  • In a separate lidded skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Place broccoli in the pan and season with a large pinch of kosher salt and white sugar. Add water, cover; steam over medium heat until broccoli is bright green and stalks are tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Arrange broccoli along the rim of a platter in a circle with the crowns facing out. Carefully place fish in the middle. Squeeze two wedges of lemon over fish and broccoli. Pour sauce and mushrooms over the fish. Garnish with toasted pecans.

  • Serve with additional lemon wedges if desired.

Cook's Notes:

Pecans may be toasted in a dry nonstick skillet over medium heat until fragrant and lightly browned.

This may be prepared with chicken instead of cod. Pound chicken breast thin, use the same coating and method as stated above. Cooking time should be adjusted to ensure chicken is cooked through.

This is a wonderful recipe easy and tasty. I didn't have broccoli so used pasta instead didn't have Classico so made my own garlicky Alfredo and it was probably not as healthy as this recipe but we licked the platter clean. Read More

Loved this recipe!!! I picked it as I had fish broccoli and half and half.. I try to find recipes that I already have.most of the ingredients This was amazing. I did not stray from the original except I used roasted heart healthy walnuts. My husband was equally happy.. I made my own Alfredo sauce using a recipe from the allrecipes site.. Don't hesitate to make this. It is a keeper. Read More

I absolutely loved this recipe. I have never thought of having an Alfredo sauce with pan-fried cod and broccoli and mushrooms lol. What an awesome combination. I actually went the extra step and made a quick homemade Alfredo sauce recipe from this site. Thanks for sharing this Nana. It was probably too elegant for my kiddos however. I will wait to make this again when I have adult guests over. Thanks again. Read More

This is very flavorful and tasty. I had some trouble with my cod in that it lost most of its coating and totally fell apart although I cooked it according to the directions. So presentation was a bit of a mess. Made my own Alfredo sauce so that added some prep time and cut a few minutes from the cooking time. The combinations of flavors is very good. My daughter thought a little vinegar would have helped the broccoli. Maybe so. Any way next time I will probably lower the cooking temp and time for the fish just a bit. Otherwise very nice dish.

Awesome recipe! The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is that it uses bottled sauce. The only addition that I did was in using a splash of white wine to deglaze the pan after searing the fish. Thanks for sharing Baking Nana Read More
