Buttery, crispy, golden fish?

Is there a secret to a perfect piece of fried (but non-breaded) fish?

I bought cod, as I often do, and what I want is a fish that is fried golden and buttery and COMES OUT OF THE PAN IN ONE PIECE.
Whenever I fry cod, I heat up my cast-iron pan with butter, or butter and olive oil, and then put the fish in. It usually sticks to the pan. Flipping it breaks it into pieces. I end up with fried fish hash. Not buttery, not a little crispy along the edges, just a pile of fish hash. Any ideas? (We don't use breading because we're gluten free.) I'm not a great cook so don't be afraid to talk down to me.
I've seen this question
, as well as others, but those are not exactly my problems.
