It’s a bright, crisp grilling day. The fresh fish fillets are prepped and ready for the grill, and the lemons are sliced and standing by to lend their zest to the fish. When taste matters, my fresh ingredients call for flavorful herbs that are ready to use and are convenient. I’ve come to depend on Litehouse Food’s Instantly Fresh Herbs. The herbs are freeze dried, easy to use, and save seasoning time during the fast-paced cooking time of fish and seafood on the grill.
Of course I like my fresh herbs, but there are times (more than I like to admit), when I forage in the fridge only to uncover a browning bunch of cilantro or parsley. With Litehouse Food’s Instantly Fresh cilantro and parsley, I always have my go-to herbs on hand, and I don’t have to forfeit flavor or the healthful benefits of fresh herbs in my recipes.
A simple grilled cod with salt, pepper, and lemon goes from plain to primo with a sprinkle of cilantro. I’m confident naming this recipe “Grilled Cod Cilantro,” because I trust the fresh taste of the cilantro. Heighten the presentation of this entrée by scattering more of the herb around the rim of the plate. From now on, my daily mise en place will include Litehouse Food’s Instantly Fresh Herbs, because flavor counts on grilling day–and every day.
Recipe: Grilled Cod Cilantro (Serves 4)
4 six-ounce fillets of boneless, skinless Alaskan cod, rinsed and patted dry
- Season each fish fillet with salt and pepper and spray grilling surface generously with non-stick grilling spray. Place each fillet on the hot grill and cook for three minutes each side. Baste fish with the light butter as it cooks to help fish remain moist.
- Remove fish from grill and plate. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over each fillet and sprinkle cilantro over fish as it is resting (2 minutes).
- Serve with additional lemon wedges and fresh salad.
