SWEET AND SAUCY ALASKA COD
Prep Time: 10 Cook Time: 20
Blend all ingredients except seafood in bowl; let set 10 to 15 minutes.
Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat.
Make a foil grill pan by shaping two layers of aluminum foil over the outside of a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Remove foil and crimp the edges to form a tight rim, making a pan with one-inch sides. Lightly coat the foil pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Cod fillets under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Dip fillets into sauce, then place in foil pan. Cover and vent.
Broil or grill 5 to 6 inches from heat source. Remove top of foil after 10 minutes, brushing with extra sauce, if desired. Continue cooking an additional 10 minutes for frozen fillets OR 5 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout. Do not overcook or burn edges.
VARIATION: Substitute Alaska Pollock or Sole fillets for Alaska Cod. Adjust cook time for smaller fillets if necessary. This sauce is also excellent with Alaska Salmon or Halibut!
