In a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, warm 3 tablespoons of olive oil with the butter. Season cod with salt and pepper and place in skillet, leaving space between fillets. Sear for 3 minutes, then turn fillets over and transfer skillet to oven for 5 minutes to finish cooking.
While cod is cooking, combine mango, avocado, cabbage, cilantro, green onion, jalapeño, lime zest and juice, pinch of cumin, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve cod warm on individual plates with slaw on the side.
