The hubby and I haven’t had fish in quite some time, so I was pretty happy when I found some fresh Cod at the grocery store today. We like our Cod nice and simple; lemon, pepper, garlic, sea salt and butter, and I’m big on broiling fish. That way, you quick-cook it, which keeps it moist and flaky and doesn’t give it a chance to dry out. Anyway, here’s my 6-ingredient recipe for simple and delicious cod for two.
Garlic lemon pepper Cod
2 fresh cod fillets
2 tbsp salted butter, melted
3 gloves of garlic, minced
2 slices of lemon
Freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
Turn on your broiler. Place Cod fillets on a rack on top of a cookie sheet filled with about 1/2 inch of water. Brush the fish generously on both sides with butter and garlic, then season with lemon, pepper, and sea salt. Broil for 10-12 minutes, or until the fish is nice and flaky. Serve with some more lemon slices and, why not, some more melted butter. Because, really, you can never have enough butter.
