Grilled Lemon Pepper Cod
This Grilled Lemon Pepper Cod is a simple, yet very tasty recipe. Lemon and pepper compliment fish so well which is why you find them paired with just about any type of seafood. Using our Lemon Pepper No Salt Seasoning reduces your salt intake, but also allows you to add some if your taste leans that way.
Grilled fish is a Summer favorite, or just about any time. Whether grilled outdoors, under a broiler, or even baked, many simple fish recipes can be adapted to whatever method of cooking you want to use. We will use the same recipe throughout the year and just change the cooking method depending on the weather and season.
We show this recipe using cod, but just about any white fish will work. Halibut, Tilapia, even catfish and Swai work well, since they all have mild flavors which take well to the Lemon Pepper flavors.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
4 Cod filets, about 6 oz each. (You can use Halibut, Tilapia other white fish if you prefer.)
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1/8 to 1/4 Cup Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1/8 Teaspoon Sea Salt (Optional)
1/2 Cup (1 Stick) Melted Unsalted Butter
2 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon Juice
Prepare a medium-hot grill. You can cook directly on the grill, on heavy-duty foil on the grill or on a slotted seafood/grill rack. Lightly oil the grill, foil or rack to help keep the fish from sticking.
Lightly brush the filets with olive oil on both sides. Sprinkle about a teaspoon or so of the Lemon Pepper on each filet. Sprinkle a pinch of the optional salt on the fish at this time if you prefer. Lightly rub in to help it stick better to the fish.
Place fish on the grill, foil or rack. Grill for 5-10 minutes per inch of thickness, turning once halfway through. A fish filet is done when it begins to flake when tested with a fork in the thickest part. Test fish while cooking to make sure it is cooked all the way through and not overcooked. Remove from grill and season with optional salt and another pinch pepper.
Combine melted butter, lemon juice and a teaspoon of the Lemon Pepper. Drizzle over the fish and serve immediately.
Serve with a side dish of Wild Rice and Sauteed or Grilled Vegetables for a great Summer Meal.
