Easy Grilled Onion-Buttered Cod

Easy Grilled Onion-Buttered Cod

Atlantic cod has been a popular fish for over one-thousand years and is caught in the northwest Atlantic from Greenland to North Carolina.

Per Mark Kurlansky, author of “Cod:  A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World,” cod was part of the desire to discover and explore North America.  By the way, Mae introduced me to this book, and if you haven’t read it, it’s a captivating look at the history of cod, and explores the globalization of the fish and its impact on history. 

Cod is a low-calorie protein that is filled with healthy omega-3 oil which has a variety of health benefits, from lowering triglyceride levels, to aiding rheumatoid arthritis, depression and baby development. 

Grilling is a simple way to prepare cod, and it brings out the delicate flavor of the fish.  Pep it up with spicy seasonings, butter, green onions, lemon juice, and salt and pepper for a tasty meal.  

We were truly surprised with how delicious the cod tasted! 

Try it, I’m hoping you’ll like it also!
