Grilled cod?

Does anyone have a good recipe for grilled cod? I searched the forum and got no hits for cod - this was a few months back.

Anyway, I fried some, which turned out great. Tasty, nice texture, but of course not very healthy. So the time after that I grilled it, and it was terrible. We threw the leftovers out.

If anyone has had success with grilled cod, I'd love to hear it.

    Not a recipe for cod specifically, but a good way to grill fish on the egg is to cut a lemon into thin slices, lay the lemon on the grid with the fish on top, rub with a small amount of EVOO and sprinkle on your favorite rub//seasoning. Cook on a raised grid around 400 degrees.
    Hope this helps :)

    If it has been previously frozen, try to wrap it first in a few paper towels and suck out the excess water. Brush with olive oil, dust with s+p or a little rub (I like DP Raising the Steaks), put a few thin slices of lemon on the top, cook till it flakes without turning, just like you would bake it in the oven. I also use a non-stick grill pan. Make up a batch of Emeril's dill sauce to put on after plating.

    You can throw some fresh herbs directly on the coals. Fennel, dill, tarragon. Whatever you like.
  • Bash, cod is a pretty flaky fish when cooked so I don't recommend throwing it directly onto the grate. You could cook it in a foil pack with butter, wine, and shredded veggies or what I like to do is blanch large swiss chard leaves and wrap individual fillets. The leaves will char and hold the fish together.
