For Cod:

  • lb cod fillets, sliced into 6 portions
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp cayenne pepper
  • salt and ground black pepper, to season
  • cooking spray
  • olive oil, for drizzling

For Scallops:

  • lb scallops, shelled and cleaned
  • ¼ cup white wine

  7. Add butter and garlic, then continue sauteing briefly. Baste the melted butter over your scallops while doing this. Set aside.
