Recipe by Cinderella
"This is a super simple recipe that can be used with any fish. I just happen to like cod a lot. You throw the ingredients in a foil pouch, then steam in the oven. A true no-brainer meal."

4 (6 ounce)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
fresh chives, coarsely chopped
Great recipe: simple but delicious. (I'm no fan of olive oil to cook with, so I used butter. Worked fine.)
I was really looking forward to making this recipe: the ingredients sounded delicious; the reviews were mostly good; and the picture (BIGSHOTSMOM's picture) was SO pretty. IT WAS SO BITTER. I used fresh thick-skinned organic lemons to make it. I did know that the white pith on citrus fruits is what makes them bitter, and I did wonder about it when adding my thick-skinned organic lemon slices to the fish, but I followed the recipe based on the positive reviews. It never occurred to me to use THIN-SKINNED LEMONS to make this recipe, or to use just the very zesty outer part of the lemon peel, or TO PEEL THE LEMONS (they are unpeeled in BIGSHOTSMOM's photo and she said that she liked this recipe) until I tasted my own very bitter creation. I don't want to give this recipe a bad review (2 stars) because I am guessing that CINDERELLA was using a different type of lemon than what is available to me in my location to make it (or expected that I would automatically PEEL THE LEMON), but really mine wasn't good. I did REMOVE THE SEEDS from the lemon, which I do know can also be bitter. I am not so discouraged that I would never try making this recipe again, but I would surly PEEL THE LEMONS.
This tastes great and it's so easy to make.
This was a super easy dinner to make, and no dish to clean made it a hit with me! I cooked this on the grill in the packets so I didn't even heat up the house. They took less time to grill. Plan on 12 to 18 minutes of cooking time, depending on the thickness of your cod. I love cod for its mild, delicate flavor. I was not a huge fan of the garlic in this recipe or I would have given it 5 stars. Otherwise, a great dinner! Thanks!
This was so good!!! The only thing I did different was used a little bit of lemon pepper seasoning. It was melt in your mouth good!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
I just made this and followed the simple directions to the letter using very fresh cod. This was bland and tasteless. I cook salmon regularly in a similar way, but with cod this method infuses very little, if any flavor.
I am sorry I cooked the fish this way. I suggest making a glaze or pan sauce if you like your food to be flavored to try and rescue this dull recipe,
Clean up is easy,
This is a tasty way to prepare cod, or any white fish. I misread the recipe and put the garlic under the lemon, which made it rather strong. It did take more like 30 minutes for my fish to bake and it could have used another 5 minutes, so I suggest you start checking at 20 minutes, but be prepared for it to take longer. Nice recipe, Cinderella, thanks!
