Do you want great tasting cod recipes?

I'm sure you must be aware of what cod fish is, right?... whether you realize it or not.

The fish sticks found in the frozen food section of your local grocery store is often made with cod fish. Most likely, those battered fish sticks and fillets are made from minced fish, and often cod fish is used as the main ingredient.

Those frozen fish sticks might taste decent enough, especially with a little tarter sauce and lemon squeeze. And they are quite simple enough to cook in order to throw together a meal real quick with a couple of sides for the family.

That's cool and all, but fresh cod is much healthier, and can be cooked and served to perfection in about the same timely manner as that processed junk.

Anyways, here are some tasty fresh cod fish recipes that will put a really nice twist on your taste buds.

Lemon Ginger Planked Smoked Cod

planked black cod fish


  • 1 ½ pounds of cod fillets (or 4 fillets)
  • 1 cedar grilling plank
  • freshly chopped dill
  • lemon, ginger and dill marinade


Place the cod fish fillets in a baking dish or in a plastic zip loc bag with the lemon, ginger and dill marinade mixture for up to 15 minutes in the refrigerator.

Place the pre-soaked grilling plank on a charcoal or gas barbecue grill over medium heat. When the plank begins smoking, place the fillets on the plank. Cover the lid and allow it to cook for about 10 minutes.

When the fish is done, remove immediately and plate them up with a sprinkle of dill. Serve and enjoy.
