This was dinner at my house last night. I was running in the door from picking up my son from practice and didnt have a lot of time to cook. Fish is one of my favorite “GoTos” for a quick turnaround from grill/oven to plate. This was a hit with my entire family. It is mild and flavorful and couldn’t be easier to prepare. Pair with a side dish of steamed broccoli and brown rice and dinner is served!

recipe by: eatlivefit.net
Prep: 10 m Cook: 10 m Ready in 20 m
4 fillet cod
12 frozen raw shrimp
salt and ground pepper to taste
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves or 1 cup spinach leaves
2 cups cherry tomatoes, approx. 20
4 Tbs chopped onion (optional)
2 Tbs olive oil
2 Tbs balsamic vinegar
Preheat grill to medium high heat (or oven to 350 degrees). Place cod piece on aluminum foil and season each lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Top cod piece with shrimp, basil (or spinach), 5 tomatoes, and onion. Drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar evenly over all the pieces. Fold over foil to make packet, crimping the edges together to make a seal. Place directly on grill grates or on cookie sheet in preheated oven. Grill until fish flakes with a fork, approx 7-9 minutes. May need to cook longer if fish was frozen, approx 12-14 minutes.
