I never was a person who enjoyed eating fish. Oh, I love Lobster, Shrimp, and Scallops and I did like an occasional fish fry featuring breaded cod. I tried Tilapia a few times. In a recent effort to expand my horizons I tried Steamed Cod. It was tender, juicy and delicious! Along with Green Beans with Almonds and a side of Couscous it was a tasty and healthy meal that I really enjoyed. I even had the leftovers for dinner! I may be on a roll!


Ingredients

  • Two 3/4-1 inch thick Cod Fillets
  • 2-3 Scallions sliced
  • Lime Juice or 1 Lime, thinly sliced
  • Margarine or Butter
  • Garlic Powder
  • Dill Weed to taste
  • Black Pepper 1/4 tsp.
  • Water

Prepare the Cod

  • Place the Cod Fillets in Aluminum Foil with edges folded to hold liquid ingredients.
  • Sprinkle with Garlic Powder, Dill and Black Pepper to taste.
  • Place 2-3 dabs of Margarine or Butter along the length of the fish.
  • Squirt on Lime Juice or place thin slices of Lime on top of the Cod Fillets.
  • Add 1/3-1/2 cup of water and fold edges of Aluminum foil together.
  • Place the foil packet in the basket of a Vegetable Steamer or Turbo Cooker and cook for 25-30 minutes.
  • Allow to stand for 5 minutes before serving. Yum!

You may substitute the Lime Juice/Slices with Lemon Juice.

      Cod is more popular in a fish fry I think and can taste better. You are right that other means of preparation are healthier. Sometimes it's more fun to eat for pleasure though. Thanks for the vote:)

      Voted up. I have tried steamed (as well as fried) cod. It's a good dish, though I must admit I prefer cod fried (though steamed is more 'good' for the eater, I guess!)
