Cod with spinach and tomatoes

    20 min

    A very simple and quick fish dish to cook on the barbecue. I always make this for myself when I am barbecuing fillet steaks for the rest of my family.

    1. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat.
    2. Place cod on a piece of foil and season with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Top cod with spinach, tomato and onion; season again with salt and black pepper. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar over cod and top with mozzarella cheese. Fold foil over cod creating a pouch, crimping the edges together to make a seal.
    3. Cook on the preheated barbecue until fish flakes easily with a fork, 7 to 9 minutes.

    Since it is winter in Michigan and dark thirty when I get home from work I decided to do this in the oven. The directions say to grill in foil so I didn't see a reason why oven would be much different. Turned out well and was also perfect for a light lunch the next day. I think this would have been great with fresh basil instead of spinach for a little extra flavor.  -  18 Feb 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this last night and it was delicious! Just sprinkled on the balsamic and I didn't seed the tomatoes. Very healthy!  -  18 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very tasty, easy and quick to make. Looks great on the plate. Also it provides a nice base to experiment a bit with some additional flavors - maybe basil, ginger, oregano.  -  12 Jul 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
