Grilled Lemon Pepper Cod #SRC

Hi Everyone!

Today is another edition of the Secret Recipe Club and today I was assigned Family, Food and Fun’s blog.  Rebekah is the person behind Family, Food and Fun blog.  She has 5 kids that must keep her extremely busy yet can find time to keep up on her beautiful blog.  Rebekah’s blog has the most wonderful dishes and gorgeous cakes.  I swear if I was a cake maker, I would so have made her Strawberry Dream Cake, but if I made it, I probably would have eaten the whole thing!!!  She also has lots of peanut butter and cookie dough recipes which I just love like her Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Squares and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, yum!  But I stayed away from all of the desserts and went for her Lemon Pepper Salmon.

I guess you can tell from the picture I didn’t use salmon but used Cod instead.  I recently started to eat fish and the only kind I have had has been salmon and tilapia, so I ventured out and tried cod-fish.  I had to ask my Husband, you know the fisherman who doesn’t eat fish, what cod-fish was.  He told me it was the fish he caught in the ocean that everyone from my work loved.  He told me it wasn’t a fishy fish.  I said good, I’m in!  So I bought 3 oz of it from the butcher at Whole Foods.  Is the person who works at the seafood counter  a butcher?  Anyway I got my fish, just for me and brought it home.  I couldn’t wait to try it, and I thought that Family, Food and Fun’s recipe for Lemon Pepper Salmon would be perfect for trying as cod-fish.

I was right!  Rebekah’s recipe was perfect.  The fish was so tender and the flavor of the lemon pepper and the soy and butter made the fish taste amazing.  For lemon pepper, I used Trader Joe’s lemon pepper grinder and that stuff is the bomb!  I love it on chicken too, but with fish, it was so amazing!!!

Lemon Pepper Grilled Cod

The key to cooking fish is cooking it for 10 minutes per 1″ tick of fish.  My fish was about 1″, so 10 minutes was perfect.  It was light, flaky and didn’t taste fishy at all.  I seasoned the fish and placed it in an aluminum packet and popped it on the grill.  No matter what kind of fish you have, I don’t like to cook it in the house because I have fear that my house will smell like fish, yuck!!!

    6. Hmmm…can you call the person who works at the fish counter a fishmonger? Maybe? I have no idea, but I’m glad you got this cod and told us about this recipe. Wish I was having this for dinner tonight!

      I am not a big fan of Cod, but your recipe looks wonderful. I need to try it with other fish. Big thanks on the recipe.

    9. So brave to choose fish when it’s something new you’ve been working on, but, seriously, what better time to experiment? Great choice and really well done!

    10. I have never made cod myself, this looks yummy! Happy belated birthday, btw!

    12. Beautiful pics. I always wonder what people do with cod.

    13. This looks so fresh! I’m always looking for new ways to make fish.
