Reviews for Broiled Cod
"was really good. I didn't have any curry powder, so I used a little cajun seasoning...... will definitely make again."
"This was not the greatest recipe. It was ok on the salmon, but the tilapia it was not good. I think it needed to soak in milk before marinading it to get some of the fishy taste out."
"Not bad...just didn't have much flavor. The marinade smelled amazing but maybe it just needs to sit longer. I marinaded mine for about 20 minutes. I might try this recipe again sometime since it was easy and I feel has potential."
"Tasteless; bland; disappointing. Many better recipes than this."
"The BEST ! ! !"
"Quick and easy. This was very light and pretty healthy. I will definitely make this again. I'd like to try this on the grill."
"I made this last night and it was a hit with my fish loving husband. I'm not much of fish eater, but I thought it was good as well. I had two cod fillets in the freezer, but wanted to make enough for leftovers as well. I couldn't find cod at the store, so I bought flounder fillets. We both think the marinade was even better with the flounder."
"We've never had cod fish before & this recipe was so easy and delicious."
"Recipe was easy to make. Fish was very flaky."
"Delicious. My whole family loved it. I definitely recommend using the broiler pan."
"I fixed this fish tonight, and it was a definite hit with my family! The spices are very flavorful! I will be using this recipe many more times~"
"Excellent recipe just the way it is....refreshingly different taste; moist, and with a flavored rice and steamed vegetables...this is a healthy and delicious meal. Congrats to Kim Russell!!"
"Made it. Husband loved it. We made it using talipia & salmon. Both turned out great. Tried some with and w/o butter - liked it without butter better. This is a keeper."
"I've been looking for quick, different, and delicious recipes to make. I made this one tonight, and it fit all categories! This is a keeper just the way it is. No changes :)"
"I made this fish last night. It was soooooo good! I'm not a fish person, but this had such good flavor! The only thing I didn't do was put the butter on it. I am going to try this recipe on chicken next!"
"I've never tried this on any other types of fish but I would use it on various kinds of fish."
"I have a question for you..I recently started W.W. too & need to learn to like fish..(4pts it is) Can this recipe be used with other white fish & also baked.I am going to try this & write again. Thanks to the lady who sent this in."
"My cod fillet were quite thin, so I cooked them for less time. The taste was wonderful and I felt absolutely no need for tartar sauce! try this.. you will love it!"
"First in response to FrogWizzer's concern about the 1/8th tsp. curry powder, do be 1/8th tsp. bold and include it. Even this insignificant amount will enhance this recipe.Insofar as this recipe sounds, we will be trying it soon, as we love cod filets and are always looking for new recipes for this favorite. The combination of ingtredients in the marinade sounds great!"
"This sounds amazing and I plan on making this over this coming weekend for my dinner. Quick question.... I am NOT a curry fan. Does this absolutly need this seasoning added to it to make it as good as everyone has posted... "
"Fantastic! Although butter is natural....I don't put anything artifical in my body...natural is always better."
"Better still, use Benecol instead of butter since it actually helps lower LDL. I really liked the taste from the curry and the flakiness of the fish. I will make this again as it is and maybe try a version with shrimp or scallops. Thanks for a good recipe."
"Haven't made this one yet. Did you notice the calories per serving? 170. You could eat two and still be on target."
"This was excellent! "
" Use fat free dressing, stevia, nu salt, and smart balance spread. "
"The fish was to die for."
"This recipe is only 4 points on Weight Watchers for each piece. Low fat main dish!"
"I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed this fish recipe. Very good, will make again"
"All the reviews were right. Even my fussy 11 year old asked for more! I will definatly make it again."
"Yum! My husband immediately asked if we could have this again soon, which doesn't happen much with fish dishes!"
"Delicious!! I have a hard time getting rid of the "fishy" taste when I make fish, but this recipe is amazing!"
"This was excellent. I did change the dressing to Italian Roasted Red Pepper to give it a little extra zip. My family loved it."
"The cooking method was perfect. The cod turned out flaky and moist. What I didn't care for was the combination of spices added to the italian dressing. I also didn't understand why sugar was added."
"This makes a tender, non-"fishy" dish that my husband and I love! I use tilapia instead of cod, and cook it in a non-stick pan since our broiler is broken, and it still turns out great."
"Perfect balance of crispy and flaky. And delicious."
"Easy and the best white fish I've ever made. Also great with halibut"
