Pan fried cod fish is an easy recipe and delicious anytime.

1 pound cod fish fillets
3/4 cup buttermilk (could use regular milk)
1 cup cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional) We like the garlic!
1/4 cup oil (I use Canola)
Mix the cornmeal, salt, pepper and garlic powder together in a shallow pan.  Dip fillets in buttermilk, then in cornmeal mixture.  Brown on both sides in hot oil.  Turn heat down to medium and let cook about 5 to 10 minutes.  Enjoy!
