Grilled Cod with Lemon Thyme and Garlicky Green Beans

As you all know I’ve been trying to eat a bit healthier especially with summer just around the corner.  With the weather being so beautiful lately it was time to fire up the grill, and get cooking!  This Grilled Cod with Lemon Thyme and Garlicky Green Beans is the perfect weekday meal.

Grilled Cod with Lemon Thyme and Garlicky Green Beans

From fridge to table in less than 30 mins!  I made a traditional tartar sauce with a bit of a kick but if you aren’t into a spicy sauce feel free to omit the Sriracha sauce.  I hope you enjoy this light and quick meal!

Ingredients:

8 (3.5 Oz) Cod Fillets or your favorite white fish

2 Tablespoons Butter, melted

1 Teaspoon Paprika

2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Thyme or 1 Teaspoon Dried Thyme

2 Cups Fresh/Frozen Whole Green Beans

1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

2 Tablespoons Butter

For the Tartar Sauce:

6 Tablespoons Mayo

3 Teaspoon Pickle Relish

1 Teaspoon Ketchup

1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Sriracha Sauce

 

Pre-heat the grill over medium heat.

Line a cookie sheet or metal pan with foil paper (I use an old cookie sheet).  Spray the foil paper with a bit of non-cook spray.

Place the cod filets on the cookie sheet spacing them evenly.  In a small bowl melt the butter in the microwave approximately 30 seconds on high.  Evenly baste the melted butter over the cod, so that it’s completely coated.

Sprinkle the cod with the paprika and the lemon thyme.  Place on the grill and cook for about 10 minuets until the fish is cooked through.  The fish should flake with a fork when done.

While the fish is on the grill cooking get the green beans started.  Seriously these are the easiest green beans and they are delicious!  I love to use the frozen organic ones that I purchase from the local big box store.  Place the green beans, 2 Teaspoons butter, garlic powder and 1 Tablespoon of water in a microwave safe container; cover and microwave on high for 3 minuets or until tender.

To make the tartar sauce combine the mayo, ketchup, Sriracha, garlic powder and pickle relish.  Stir until every combined and set aside.

Remove the Grilled Cod once the fish is cooked through and flaky.  Serve over the garlicky green beans with a side of the spicy tartar sauce (Serves 4).  Enjoy!  If you have a chance let me know what you think in the comments!

    how long do you grill? i can’t stand recipes like this that leave out basic details. ‘remove when cooked through and flaky’. now how are you going to monitor this while making green beans? the notion is silly
