Garlic-Butter Marinated Grilled Cod


I know it’s grilling season here, but please!  It’s in the 50’s and the heat is on in our house right now.  But grilling goes on here almost daily, because who knows, it might be snowing next week at this rate!  Now for the fish:

Fish doesn’t require a long time to marinate ~ a 30-minute soak is sufficient.

And, if you’re looking for a great marinade, look no further, as this one, with its simple ingredients is delicious.


Cod

Redolent with butter, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and red pepper flakes, this is a piquant marinade for cod.  It bursts with flavor and is impressive with little effort.  

It’s just the thing to grill when you can’t think of what else to cook!
Hope you like it!

Garlic-Butter Marinated Grilled Cod

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce

Method:

In a saucepan, heat all ingredients, except cod, over medium heat.
Cool mixture and pour into resealable plastic bag.
Add cod, and let marinate in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Place fillets on medium-hot grill and grill 5 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily with a fork. 
Serve with lemon slices, if desired.

ENJOY!

  1. I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that it is summer!! Very cool and very rainy around here daily!! I alternate soup with salads. For decades, I thought cod came in dry little "blocks" and were very salty. It wasn't until I started visiting New England a few years ago that I realized it was a delicious "normal" fish!! This looks delicious!!

    Best,
    Bonnie

    1. I know what you mean with the weather, Bonnie! It rained here earlier and is kind of dreary. Funny with the cod. The store doesn't carry it all the time, but we love it when they do. Thanks, it is delicious!

  4. Pam, This marinade sounds terrific! I've never tried grilling cod...but hey...why not!? The rain and cooler temperatures are past us and it will be in the low to mid-90s here today and for the next 3 or 4 days afterwards. It gets warm enough for us to grill here even in the winter although we do have periods each month during the winter where it is too chilly. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  5. How delicious! We've not done any grilling this season. I think this would do fine in the oven!

  17. Hi Pam,
    Wow, that dish looks really mouth watering! I love cod but it is not an affordable fish to feed a family of four over here! They are pretty expensive!
    I would definitely enjoy this dishl
