Cod is a delicious fish, with a mild flavour and white firm flesh. After buying cod, (and most fish in general), always rinse off the fish with cool water when you get home and pat dry and then rewrap. Store it in the coldest part of the fridge and for no more then 2 days.
- 2 lbs cod, 4 fillets
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon cayenne (optional)
- 1 dash salt
- 1 dash black pepper
- 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 lemon, wedged
- Dust cod with cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne.
- Spread mustard over fish.
- If grilling use the butter to baste, this of course means you'll need to melt the butter.
- Grill for about 3 minutes per side.
- You could alternatively broil for 3-4 minutes per side in the oven.
- In this case, place the fish on a broiling pan and dot each fillet with butter before putting it in the oven (on broil).
- Either way the fish flesh will be white, firm and flake easily with a fork when done.
- Serve with lemon wedges.
It was fine the first day, not anything to write home about so I would only give it 2.5 stars but the second day I used the leftovers for fish tacos and it tasted much better. It really makes a difference what you pair it with. Now a 4 star. Thanks.
My Husband and I gave this recipe a try with a twist. We added a few ingredients and left out the mustard. We added Onion Powder, Celery Salt, White Pepper, Sugar, Black Pepper, Corriander, and Paprika...made it into a dry rub...and it was awsome. Just the right amount of hot to add flavor without the over powering flavor of the Mustard which some didnt seem to like.
My family did not enjoy this recipe. The mustard was at times very overwhelming. Sorry!
