Broiled Cod

This is the easiest and tastiest fish you'll serve. Even finicky eaters who think they don't like fish will love it because it lacks a fishy taste and is beautiful and flakey. —Kim Russell, North Wales, Pennsylvania

    This is a good recipe for what you need to know in terms of how long to cook the fish. I like mine simpler too, but I also like it spicy, so mine uses just a lil oil on the fish and pan, some Louisiana Hot Sauce smeared thinly on the top side of the fish after a squeeze of lemon, followed by cayenne pepper and black pepper tp taste. I serve it w/ a dollop of creamy horseradish on the side. Delicious! You really don't taste the seasonings, it just gives it a pleasant kick. Most of the seasoning gets mellowed out in the cooking process. I tend to cook it just 8 minutes too, but it depends on you broiler and how thick your fillets are.

    Mar 4, 2017 never ceases to amaze me that people want to cook fish but do everything possible to "keep the fishy taste out". Cook something else.There is nothing worse than a nondescript tasting fish (tilapia I. e.) that you have to add a dozen or so herbs etc. to have some taste that's not even FISH.There is not a fish that swims that is nothing short of incredible in and of it's on merit in taste.Fry it, poach it, bake it, grill it, stew it, roast it and everything else...

    Easy dish and my family loved the flavor. I have used tilapia and swai with great results.

    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.
