Honey Soy Lemon Cod

Number of servings


  • 4 Alaska cod fillets, fresh or thawed
  • 1 Sunkist lemon
  • 1.5 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (or quarter the amount if using dried ginger)
  • 0.25 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


Preparation & Cooking: 20 minutes


  1. Zest the lemon into a bowl then cut the lemon into wedges.
  2. Combine the lemon zest soy sauce, honey, oil, ginger and red pepper flakes in a broiler-safe baking dish or pan (about 8 inches by 8 inches).
  3. Add Alaska cod to the dish, turning fish over to coat all sides.
  4. Let stand 10-15 minutes to marinate. For a richer taste, marinate the cod for up to 4 hours in the refrigerator. When ready to bake, set the cod on the counter for 15 minutes to take the chill off.
  5. Set broiler temperature to high; move oven rack to 7 inches below the broiler element.
  6. Turn cod in marinade again just before broiling, and tuck in any thin cod end pieces to prevent overcooking.
  7. Cook just until cod is opaque throughout, about 5-8 minutes.
  8. Spoon cooked marinade over the cod and serve with lemon wedges.
