Dinner Tonight: Cilantro Lime Cod

For tonight’s dinner, I splurged a little and bought fish.  Cod fillets were on sale, so I decided to try a recipe from my Taste of Home cookbook that I got for Christmas.  The flavor was great, but unfortunately I cooked the crap out of the fish.  The recipe said to cook the fish in foil for 35 to 40 minutes.  That seemed like a long time to me, but the fillets were pretty sizeable and I’ve never tried to cook cod before.  Regardless, I should have followed my instincts and checked the fish about 20 minutes in.  I’d recommend this recipe as long as you cut back the cooking time quite a bit. 



I topped the fillets with salt and pepper, garlic, onion and cumin that I sautéed in olive oil, cilantro, and thin slices of lime.  Then I drizzled it with melted butter.  So far, so good, right?  I wrapped the fish in foil and baked it at 375 degrees for a quarter of a century.  Or at least that’s what it tasted like.  




I served the fish with some rice that I cooked in chicken stock, with a little butter, cilantro, and cumin mixed in to complement the cod.  If I make this again, I’m going to try it in fish tacos.  Man I love a fish taco.
