Cod with Rhubarb Sauce

This main dish is a refreshing change of pace. The distinctive sweet-tart sauce complement any grilled fish nicely.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

    I was really looking forward to trying this recipe and unfortunately I was disappointed. I have made cod many times, but I guess I never grilled it. Cod is a delicate fish, and as it cooked it flaked apart and fell under the grill grates. I was only able to save less than half. The funny thing is that when I was looking at the fish at Kroger I actually picked up a fish grill basket that was on sale for $5.99. Needless to say I will be buying the basket when I go back to the store next week. I found the rhubarb sauce to be just okay, but I would like to try the cod again with maybe a different sauce.

    The picture does not do this recipe justice. The picture looks gross.
