I’ll freely admit that my favorite type of seafood or fish is salmon. I don’t mind tuna (and have definitely made some tuna noodle casseroles when I’m in a hurry), but most fish and seafood, I just don’t care for too much. I typically make it because my husband likes it. I have had some incredible beer battered fish and chips, but living in the Midwest, it’s hard to replicate that fresh caught fish flavor with what comes from the frozen section. As a result, I tend to shy away from things that I see as relatively “fishy” unless I can smother them in tartar sauce. However, I had some cod, so I thought I’d break from my usual oven baked fish and chips and go with something Asian inspired. I combined honey, soy sauce, lemon juice and some ginger. I wanted the fish well done, but not dry. I just broiled it for a few minutes until it was cooked through. It might take slightly longer based on how thick your fish is. I love the rich soy-ginger flavor. It was perfect to off-set the fishy flavor but wasn’t overpowering. And it was so simple! Just mix the marinade ingredients together, brush it on the fish, broil and you’re done. Serve it with a big side salad or some steamed vegetables and you’ve got a delicious meal that’s ready in less than 30 minutes.
