Step 1

Sprinkle cod evenly with mustard seeds and let marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, heat butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add shallots; cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add peas, 1 cup water, and salt and black pepper, and cover partially with lid; cook until sauce is reduced, about 10 minutes. Set sauce aside and keep warm.

Purée 3/4 cup peas, half-and-half, salt, and black pepper in a food processor; transfer to a 2-quart saucepan and keep warm over low heat. Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add cod; cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Season with salt. Divide pea purée among 6 serving plates and top with cod; spoon over sauce and garnish with dill.
