Grilled cod fillets basted with butter, lemon, and green onion.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 (8 ounce) fillets cod, cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon lemon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion (white part only)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Stack about 15 charcoal briquettes into a grill in a pyramid shape. If desired, drizzle coals lightly with lighter fluid and allow to soak for 1 minute before lighting coals with a match. Allow fire to spread to all coals, about 10 minutes, before spreading briquettes out into the grill; let coals burn until a thin layer of white ash covers the coals. Lightly oil the grates.
  2. 2 Season both sides of cod with Cajun seasoning, lemon pepper, salt, and black pepper. Set fish aside on a plate. Heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, stir in lemon juice and green onion, and cook until onion is softened, about 3 minutes.
  3. 3 Place cod onto oiled grates and grill until fish is browned and flakes easily, about 3 minutes per side; baste with butter mixture frequently while grilling. Allow cod to rest off the heat for about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. Really good and easy. Used the broiler pan and baked at 450 degrees.
  2. We LOVE this recipe! You need to buy good sustainably caught cod and then just enjoy.....we have it a couple of times a month. I also found that the brand of Cajun seasoning can make a difference as well. I use Zatarain's Creole Seasoning. When I ran out and had to find a sub @ - Read more ...
  3. Just being honest, the cod was rubbery. I prefer cod battered and fried over this recipe any day. It is too spicy for kids as well.
  4. Very tasty. The grill HAS to be HOT!! Definitely will make again.
  5. A 5 star for our family! My husband said this is a keeper. Easy and delicious. We put it on foil on a gas grill and it took a little longer to cook but mouthwatering good.
  6. I used the broiler, placing fish on a well greased broiling pan. Covered both sides of the fish with the spice mixture, then basted with the butter, lemon juice, onion mix. OMG!!! It was sooo good. The only change I would make next time would be to coat only one side of the fish with - Read more ...
  7. This was excellent! However, my fish wasn't that great for grilling. My problem lies with being frozen cod, that I got from Fred Meyer/Kroger...and when I opened the bag after it was fish floating in a lot of water. And my fish was alreaady crumbly. And was falling apart in the grilling process. So - Read more ...
  8. This was delicious! My kids loved it too. Definitely a keeper in my recipe box. The changes I made: I didn't have lemon juice so substituted lime juice. I also eyeballed the seasonings that went on the fish.
  9. this is a fantastic recipe. We are on a low fat, no salt diet. Used lemon-herb seasoning, more pepper & no salt. Used butter spray, not butter. Integrity of the recipe remained & we give it a 5 star pluss it's healthy.. Thanks.
