Pan Fried Cod

I'm all about easy meals but easy AND tasty trumps plain old easy any day! I had this on the table in under 20 minutes! What made it even better (yes it gets even better) was that it was cheap - yes cheap and easy. Wait -- that didn't sound quite right.... anyway, I digress. Back to the cod... 
If you're Paleo and you're looking for a tasty seasoning that doesn't have crap in it, one that I'd suggest is Emeril's Original Essence. Tastes great on poultry and fish and its pretty inexpensive. 
I don't know if this really constitutes a recipe but it was delish so I had to share. Hope you love it too!

Pan Fried Cod
Wild Caught Cod Fillets (found these at Costco)
Emeril's Original Essence
Bacon Fat

Pat cod fillets completely dry using a paper towel. Season ONE side generously with Emeril's Original Essence. Melt about a tablespoon of bacon fat in a pan. Place cod seasoned side down in bacon fat taking care NOT to move it. You want a nice crust to form. Turn only when fish is half opaque. Remove from fire when fish is completely opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

So what would you say makes the seasoning the best? I'm avoiding nightshades and am looking for a way to season some cod tomorrow night!
