The other night we had fish. Cod fillets actually. I had two packages of them in the freezer and not much of an idea of what to do with them. I generally tend to slather on some butter, sprinkle with pepper, a few drops of lemon juice and bake it... There sat the bottle of honey, next to the one lemon we had and a couple of limes. Why not make a sweet & sour type sauce? So I did.
about 1-2 tablespoons of honey (no, I didn't measure it)
2 packages of frozen Cod fillets
pepper to taste (optional)
Put the fillets in cold water in the sink to thaw.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees or as instructed on the fillet packaging.
Cut the lemon and limes in half, squeeze the juice from them into a small bowl.
Add the honey as you stir with a fork to combine.
You can add in the pepper if you choose.
When the fillets are thawed, place them in a baking dish. I used a 7x9 dish. Pour the lemon, lime, honey juice/sauce over the fillets. There should be plenty to cover some of the fillets. Bake for 9-11 minutes or as instructed on the fillet packaging.
I made green beans to go along with the cod and on the back of the cod packaging there was another recipe suggestion (which I wrote down and will share because it sounds good and I want to try it!) that also suggested serving with green beans.
Quick, simple and the juice/sauce? Gave the cod a delightful kick.
***Edited to add-> I brought the last two fillets to work for lunch. They had been sitting in the citrus honey sauce all night and morning. All I can say is WOW! Much better than it was night before! If you can, let the fillets sit in the marinade for a few hours or even overnight before baking. ***
