25 min

Prep 15 min

Cook 10 min

Serves 4


  • Cooking spray  4 spray(s)
  • Uncooked Atlantic cod  24 oz, or other firm white fish, such as tilapia (four 6-oz fillets)
  • Table salt  ½ tsp
  • Lemon(s)  2 medium, sliced ¼ inch thick to make 12 slices
  • Dill  4 sprig(s)
  • Light butter  4 tsp, at room temperature
  • Dill  2 tsp, chopped
  • Lemon zest  1 tsp


  1. Off heat, coat grill rack or grill pan with nonstick spray. Preheat gas grill or grill pan to medium-high, or prepare medium-high fire in charcoal grill.
  2. Pat fish dry and season with salt. Arrange 3 lemon slices on grill, slightly overlapping edges. Top lemons with 1 dill sprig and 1 fillet. Repeat with remaining lemon slices, dill sprigs, and fish. Cover grill and cook, without turning fillets, until fish is opaque and yields easily to thin knife, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix butter, chopped dill, and lemon zest until blended.
  4. Using 2 metal spatulas, transfer fillets to plates. Top each with 1½ tsp lemon-dill butter. Serve with grilled lemon slices, if desired.
  5. Serving size: 6 oz cod and 1½ tsp butter
