Wild Alaskan cod is one of the most versatile fish in your freezer. If you either don’t have or don’t care for cod, halibut or sole work equally well for this delightful dish. This recipe makes the most of cod’s versatility by layering flavors to produce a delicious dinner that takes only 15 to 20 minutes to make. Piccata dishes are one type of scaloppini. This Italian term refers to dishes in which thin pieces of fish, chicken, or veal are dredged in flour, sautéed and served with a reduction sauce. In this case, the fish is dredged in flour, quickly sautéed, then the same pan is used to make a simple sauce from the fish drippings plus lemon, white wine, capers and butter. The lightness of cod, halibut and sole gives you a little leeway to make a slightly richer sauce — a match made in culinary heaven!<br/><br/>A few notes for the cook: If you prefer not to use wine you can substitute a little chicken or vegetable broth — but a dry white wine will produce the tastiest results. If you’re avoiding wheat flour, you can instead use almond or chickpea flour, which are readily available in natural food stores and online. Complementary accompaniments to the piccata include garlicky sautéed greens or zucchini, and risotto, rice, or whole grain pasta.
