Cod with Herb-Butter Sauce and Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

I love this meal so much. The cod has a nice crust and big flavor pan sauce that compliments these green beans that I have posted about before. We use one skillet for both the fish and the sauce to build flavor and keep the dirty dish count down. Win-Win.


1.5 pounds green beans (I like the ready to steam-in-bag beans)

Olive oil (I like California Olive Ranch evoo)

Kosher salt and black pepper

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 Lemon

2 garlic cloves, minced

3/4 teaspoon sugar

Fresh basil or other herbs (optional)

4 skinless cod fillets (1-1.5 inches thick)

1/2 cup flour

1 shallot
