Cod is an affordable, nutritious, and easy to prepare fish that’s very popular at Lake Geneva Country Meats. It’s a flaky fish that does well baked, but during hot summer months, it’s not always fun to turn on the oven in the house. This foil packet recipe keeps the flaky fish from getting overcooked, and also gives you yummy veggies to enjoy along with the fish. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
- 4 Tbsp Butter
- 1/4 cup Lemon Juice
- 4 piece Cod
- 1 Green Bell Pepper (sliced)
- 1 Red Bell Pepper (sliced)
- 1 Yellow Bell Pepper (sliced)
- 6 Cherry Tomatoes (quartered)
- 1 Lemon (cut into slices)
- Parsley (for serving)
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the lemon juice to the melted butter and stir to combine.
Season each piece of cod with salt and pepper to your taste. Place each piece of cod in the middle of a piece of aluminum foil large enough to close over the cod. Each piece of cod should go in its own packet. Fold the edges of the foil upward to create a basket.
Finish filling the foil packets as follows: split the sliced peppers and tomatoes into 4 even groups, and add one group of peppers and tomatoes on top of the cod. Pour 1/4 of the lemon & butter mixture over the cod and tomatoes. Close each packet, and place on a grill preheated to 400ºF over indirect heat.
Cook over indirect heat for 10-12 minutes, until the cod is opaque and flakes easily. Remove packets from grill, and carefully open up to let steam escape. Serve with a squeeze of fresh lemon and fresh chopped parsley, if desired. Enjoy!
