In tonight’s colorful, seasonal recipe, we’re basting our cod with a brown butter sauce, balanced with a splash of sherry vinegar. This sauce also dresses a hearty side of sautéed vegetables—including delicious shishito peppers. A Japanese variety, shishitos (which tend to be mild, but can be hot!) add incredibly satisfying texture to the dish, completed by the herbaceous lift of fresh oregano.
