I've been on a seafood kick lately...Mrs. Red found a couple frozen Atlantic Cod fillets that looked pretty good (its often a challenge to find fresh fish and seafood in our part of the country).  Here's an easy recipe that we really like for grilled fish:

Marinade Ingredients:

6 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice 

1/4 cup melted butter

2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

Put fish fillets and marinade in a large ziplock bag, and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour (longer is better).  Take the fish fillets out and discard the marinade.  Add salt and lemon pepper to taste.

2 - 6 oz. Cod Fillets...Marinated and seasoned...about to go on the grill


Got the grill up to 500*, coated the grill grates with canola cooking spray, then laid these on.  Grilled the fillets for about 4-5 minutes on each side.


Done, and plated with roasted onion-seasoned potatoes, and fresh cole slaw.


A closer look...moist, flaky and delicious!


Thanks for stopping by...

Another fine meal Red! 
  I bet that didn't last long at all! I know what you mean about finding fresh fish & seafood - there's not much here in the sticks where I live either... I'm hoping for a summer seafood sale somewhere! 
  Great meal man!

Looks delicious. Bet it tastes too. I love cod (or whatever they sell us labelled as cod).

Thanks Jeremy!  We have one market nearby that's got a decent meat counter...they have some "fresh" seafood from time to time but its hit or miss.  That's one of the few things I really miss about my years on the Left Coast...no end to freshly-caught seafood.  When you can buy it within hours of when it came off the boat...that's fresh!

LOL thanks Brian! You're right about flaky fish being tricky on the grill...I've had them fall completely apart, but was lucky this time.
