4 Alaska Cod fillets (5 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
24 oz. Your favorite beer
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


Add beer to a large pan and simmer.  Rinse the frozen Alaska Cod fillets under cold water.  Turn off heat and add cod to beer, skin side down.  Return heat to a simmer (beer should simmer, not boil).

Once simmering, cover the pan tightly and cook 4 to 5 minutes for frozen cod or 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Turn off the heat and let the fish rest in liquid for 5 minutes, or until opaque throughout.  Remove cod from pan; baste with a little of the warm beer to amp up the hops/beer flavor in the fish.  Season with a little salt, to taste.
