What should I marinate cod in?

Hello! I just bought some cod today, and I've never cooked with it before. What makes a good marinade?

Thanks. ^_^

I don't marinate fish - I usually just grill it with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  When all done, I spritz with lemon juice and YUM!
I don't marinate white fish either.  I season my cod with lemon, salt and pepper (keep it simple!) and bake it.  Once in a while I season with lemon and Old Bay Seasoning, just for variety.

Fish will cook if you marinate it for more than 20 minutes.

The good news is that cod, like other white fish, is a great base for lots of flavours. You can put pesto or salsa on it and broil it in the oven.  A mix of dry herbs (thyme, basil, oregano) with lemon juice and garlic is also nice.

Thanks a lot! I'm glad I didn't make that mistake. I guess I'm in the habit of marinading everything.
You could try a ceviche, which is a dish that utilizes a citrus marinade to "cook" the fish, without the use of heat.

I usually cook my fish in foiling paper in the oven, it saves the flavour. For white fish, mix dijon mustard with grainy mustard, salp, pepper, a spoon of lemon juice, some plain yogurt or sour cream and chives. Spread the mix on the fish and enjoy. Am French, I love mustard!!

Check this out for something different!!! I made it the other night and LOVED it. Go easy on the soy sauce or it gets really salty. Otherwise, to die for. 238273

cod can stand up to a lot of different cooking methods. one of my faves is to saute the cod in olive oil for only a couple of minutes (seasoned with s&p) and then remove from the pan. then saute shallots, garlic, and red peppers. next add some canned tomatoes, kalamata olives and capers and add the cod back in with a couple of thin slices of lemon. you can simmer it FOREVER and the cod doesn't get disgustingly overcooked like most fish

sesame oil, sesame seeds, vinegar, sugar and soy sauce

My grandmother's recipe - poach cod in tomatoes, peppers and onions.  Saute the onions and peppers, add canned, diced tomatoes, season well with fresh herbs (basil, oregano, parsley, garlic).  Bring to a simmer in a large saute pan.  Place the fish in the pan and spoon tomatoes over.  Cover and simmer about 15 minutes or until the fish is done (don't overcook.)

This stuff is amazing! Seasoning just for seafood. 1.php
