PREPARATION
PREPARING THE LENTILS
1.
Cover lentils with cold water by 1 1/2 inches in a 2-quart saucepan and bring to a boil.
2.
Simmer, uncovered, until lentils are just tender, 12 to 25 minutes.
3.
Drain in a sieve set over a bowl and reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid.
PREPARING THE ONION AND GARLIC
4.
While lentils are simmering, melt 2 tbsp butter in a 2- to 3-quart heavy saucepan over moderately low heat, then stir in onion, garlic, and salt and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until pale golden, about 10 minutes.
5.
Remove lid and cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until golden, 5 to 10 minutes more.
6.
Stir in lentils and enough reserved cooking liquid to moisten (1/4 to 1/2 cup) and cook until heated through.
PREPARING THE COD
7.
Prepare the cod during the last 10 minutes of cooking the onions and lentils.
8.
Pat fish dry and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
9.
Heat 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp oil in a 10- to 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then sauté fish, turning over once, until browned and just cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes total.
TO SERVE
10.
Just before serving, stir in parsley, lemon juice, pepper, and 1 tablespoon oil to the lentil mixture.
11.
Serve fish with lentils and drizzle with additional extra-virgin olive oil if desired with grated lemon peel.
