    Things To Grab

    • Olive oil
    • Hy-Vee salt
    • Hy-Vee ground black pepper
    • Small saucepan with lid
    • Small bowl
    • Medium bowl
    • Paper towels
    • Large skillet
    • Instant read meat thermometer


    1. Cook Farro: Set butter out to soften. Rinse farro to remove excess starch. In small saucepan, bring farro, 1 cup water and 1/4 teaspoon salt to boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cover; cook 15 to 20 minutes until water is absorbed and farro is tender. Keep warm.

    2. Make Compound Butter: Use fork to mash softened butter with Bay seasoning in small bowl; set aside. Pat cod dry with paper towels; season both sides with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

    3. Prepare Peppers: Toss peppers with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and stir to coat; cook 1 minute, stirring often. Add peppers to skillet and toss to coat.

    4. Sauté Cod: Push peppers to edges of skillet, exposing the center; melt 2 tablespoons compound butter in space created. Add cod and sauté about 4 minutes on each side, basting with melted butter, until cod reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees on an instant read meat thermometer and fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

    5. It's Mealtime! Divide farro between 2 plates, top with pepper mixture and cod filets. Top cod with spoonful of Bay compound butter and let butter melt over cod, peppers and farro.
