  • Making the Slaw

    While the cod is marinating, grab a large bowl and whisk together mayonnaise, lime juice, cilantro, and honey. Then stir in the cabbage, corn, and jalapeño. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Time to Cook the Cod

    Heat the vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the cod from the marinade and season the full filet with salt and pepper. Add fish to the pan flesh side-down. Cook until opaque and cooked through, which is about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Let the cod rest for 5 minutes before flaking into chunks with a fork.
