Tropical storm Irene has come and gone.  Many areas of Cape Cod are still without power and it is now 2 days later.  We hope that everyone gets power back very soon, as it is not easy living these days without electricity.  Luckily for those who fish, there are some great recipes where you can grill your fish.  No need for electricity for your grill!  Below is a very tasty Codfish recipe we found online, give it a try and let us know what you think!  Happy eating!

Grilled Onion and Butter Codfish


  • 4 cod fillets, about 6 ounces
  • 1 small onion, chopped finely
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, sliced


Preheat grill for medium-high heat. In small skillet melt butter. Add onions and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add white wine and let simmer for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Brush fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place fish on oiled grill rack and cook for 8 minutes. Baste cod with butter sauce and turn. Cook for an additional 6-7 minutes or until fish is opaque. Baste an additional 2-3 times. Remove cod from heat, top with lemon wedges, and serve.
