Blackened seasoned cod with lemon

Tips / Suggestions

  • If pan frying on a grill, place the lemon halves on the grill during the entire cook. The charred lemon juice adds some nice flavor to the dish.
  • You can also use butter instead of olive oil to spread over the fish and in the pan. This tastes amazing as well, and is more of a traditional blackened dish.
  • Try this dish with red snapper, mahi mahi, or rockfish. It works really well with most.
