  5. Coat one side of the cod fillets with flour and season both sides with salt and pepper.
  6. Pour the olive oil in a sauté pan and put the cod fillets flour side down. Sauté for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn over and put in the oven to bake for 4 to 6 minutes.
  7. Separate the fillets onto four plates and drizzle the ragout on top.
