Perfect Grilled Cod
Here’s the newest recipe you didn’t know you needed: Perfect Grilled Cod! This fish is bursting with flavor and one of our favorite things to come off of the grill this season. Perhaps grilled cod doesn’t sound like something to wax poetic about. But cover it in homemade blackened seasoning and it’s got massive savory and smoky notes, with a hint of underlying intrigue from cloves and allspice. Or, you can use our seafood seasoning to get the same flavors without the underlying heat. Here’s how to make magic on your grill with cod!

Pan-Fried Cod with Slaw
Beer-Battered Fish and Chips
Our take on this classic British pub grub is just right. Rice flour, baking powder and beer in the batter keep the breading light and crisp, and making your own "chips" is definitely worth it. The double-frying method at two different oil temperatures ensures that the potatoes are perfectly golden and never soggy.

Just looks at how delicious this meal looks, take a few minutes to look at our video so you can follow a long. Year ago here in NL people always made lovely meals with fresh or salted cod, I can’t remember having all types of seafood but cod was in ever house. Panfried, deep-fried, stuffed, salted, and served with fresh veggies and lots of bread. Having lots of sauces with the meals and we could dip our bread into, take a few minutes to follow the recipe and of course watch our video.
Fresh cod fillets for this homemade, BARBECUED Baked COD Fillets Ingredients for this BARBECUED Baked COD Fillets
If you like seafood meals you would love this one, I can’t say it you use regular BBQ sauce it would be the same. Having the homemade BBQ sauce just bring this meal to a different level and you made it yourself. Thats whats so lovely about homemade cooking, years ago people would make everything. We had access to fresh cod and fresh vegetables all the time and you can make many meals from them……..everyone had the basic in their cupboards, flour, sugar, butter, salt and pepper and a few extras, like ketchup, mustard, vinegar you know where I’m going with this. You can make lots of meals just from having these ingredients in your home. Bologna was another meat everyone had in the fridges, called Newfoundland steak…….again you can make with the ingredients I just shared with you a pot of bologna stew.

For the cod loin fillets:
- 50 g natural yoghurt
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 tablespoons Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
- 2 teaspoons apricot jam
- A few lemon thyme leaves
- ½ teaspoon curry powder
- Freshly ground pepper
- 4 cod loin fillets (approx. 150 g each)
For the lime and coriander aioli:
- 1 small, organic lime
- 2 garlic cloves
- 150 g mayonnaise
- 1–2 tablespoons honey
- A few coriander leaves, chopped
- 1–2 tablespoons Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
- Freshly ground pepper
For the barbecued sweet potatoes:
- 800 g sweet potato
- 4 spring onions
- 1 garlic clove
- 3 tablespoons Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- A few rosemary needles
- Freshly ground pepper
To prepare the marinade, mix together the yoghurt, lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, jam, thyme, curry powder and pepper. Brush the fish fillets with the marinade and put in the fridge for around 30 minutes until you’re ready to start the barbecue.
Prepare the lime and coriander aioli by washing the lime under hot water, then patting it dry. Grate off some of the zest, cut the lime in half and squeeze out the juice. Peel and finely chop the garlic. In a bowl, mix together the mayonnaise, lime zest and juice, garlic, honey, coriander and soy sauce, seasoning to taste with pepper.
Peel the sweet potatoes, wash and cut into approx. 2 cm dice. Clean the spring onions, slice and wash. Peel and finely dice the garlic. Mix together the garlic, sweet potatoes, spring onions, soy sauce, olive oil and rosemary, seasoning with pepper to taste.
Place the sweet potatoes on the barbecue for approx. 15-20 minutes and cod fillets on the barbecue for approx. 6-10 minutes depending on the heat (closing the lid, if your barbecue has one). Serve with the lime and coriander aioli.
Tip: The marinade tastes just as great with other white fish as it does with turkey breasts or steaks.

Tips & Tricks for Grilling Fish
Fish has a reputation for being tricky on the grill but it really is pretty easy to grill up some fresh fish fillets! This is also one of the fastest things you can cook on the grill! Even counting the time it takes to preheat the grill this is an easy 15 minute dinner so you don’t want to miss having this in your week night rotation!
- Choose The Right Fish. Lots of kinds of fish grill up easily. I like to choose less expensive options such as cod, rockfish or tilapia. Any firm white fish fillet or steak will be good. More delicate fish such as flounder or sole won’t be a good grilling option. The Market St. Albertsons and the Albertsons on Broadway both have excellent fish counters with plenty of options.
- Get the right tool for the job! Buy an extra wide spatula meant for fish. This really helps you flip the fillet without things breaking!
- Thicker is better! A thicker fillet is easier to grill than a thinner one.
- PREP that grill! Get the grill good and hot for five minutes and scrub it well with a grill brush. Once it is clean, make sure you oil it up to prevent sticking. An oiled grate + an oiled fish is the recipe for fish grilling success! (If you are grilling for a party and need to do a 2nd round of fish on the grill make sure to clean between rounds.)
- Don’t skimp on the seasoning! Mild white fish needs some flavor! I use a little Cajun seasoning to get some background flavor but by keeping the amount small it is not spicy.
- Preheat to the right temperature. Use a medium hot fire to grill fish.
- Know when to flip! The bottom of the fish will start to turn opaque when it is time to flip it. If you have cleaned and oiled the grill correctly, the fish should release easily when it is time to turn. If it is not, the fillet probably needs a minute or two more on that side before flipping.
- Flip like you mean it! Use a firm motion to scoot the spatula under the fish. Don’t pussy foot around. Go in, scrape up that fillet and flip it.
- No “reflipping.” Flip that fish once and call it good. Flipping it over and over can cause the fillet to break apart and fall through.
- Don’t overcook! I’m a huge instant-read thermometer fan for cooking in general but most fish fillets are so thin it is less effective here. Instead I watch for the fish to start to flake and become opaque. Use a fork to pull at the center of the fillet just a bit. If it flakes away, the fish is done. Generally, it is recommended to take the fish off the grill just before it is actually done. The fish will continue to cook for another moment after you pull it from the grill. Fish is considered done at 140F. If you pull it from the grill between 130 and 135 it will continue to cook up to 140 as it rests.
Wild Caught or Farmed Fish?
I grew up in a town that was a one hour drive from the Pacific ocean. It was easy to get fresh fish! Now that I live in Boise I am selective about where I buy fish.
With some fish I will only eat wild caught. Salmon in particular really tastes much better if it is wild caught and the farmed stuff has a really fishy “off” flavor. I suggest buying fish from a store that has a good fish counter with educated staff.
Fish that has not been frozen usually tastes fresher (less “fishy”) and has better texture! Using a store with a good fish counter will give you selection and an opportunity to ask questions.
What to Serve With Fish?
Grilled fish is a simple protein and does well with other simple foods. When I’m doing BBQ Cod I like to toss some asparagus spears on one side of the grill. Some oil, salt and pepper on the spears and turn them a few times while the fish is cooking and you have a perfect side dish!
Other good options are crusty french bread, grilled vegetables, rice pilaf, or tossed salad.
How to Use Leftover Fish
Fish is best cooked the day you bring it home or the next day. If you end up with some leftovers from your grilling consider tossing it into a soup or stew. It generally does not microwave up well.
Barbecued Cod With A Cumin And Black Pepper Spice Rub
- 1k cod fillet - skin left on
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 210ml (3/4 cup) toasted cumin seeds
- 4 tablespoons freshly cracked black pepper
- 2 lemons or limes - quartered
- Sea salt to taste
- Lightly coat the cod with the oil.
- Combine the spice rub ingredients and grind to a fine powder.
- Press about one tablespoon of powder into each side of the fish. It is important to really get in there and press the spices into the flesh so that they form a crust.
- Heat your gas, charcoal or wood fired grill until hot and then allow it to start cooling down. The grill is ready when you can only hold your hand two inches over the grill for about two seconds before it starts to burn.
- If you like this simple barbecued cod recipe, please subscribe to my blog. I've got loads more recipes to share.
- Place the cod fillets on the grill and allow to sizzle for about one to two minutes per side.
- Be careful when turning the fish so that it doesn't fall apart. Also, do not over-cook the fish or in most certainly will fall apart!
- Serve with the lemon wedges and if you are so inclined, a few ice cold beers.

How to cook fish on the BBQ
There are all sorts of clever tricks to achieve perfect fish on the barbecue – we’re talking melt-in-the-mouth flakes with a gorgeous smoky flavour and perfectly crispy skin. So next time you’re lighting the coals, make sure you put fish on the menu and use our five top tips to really impress your guests.
