Broiled Cod Montauk
Mayonnaise helps keep the fish moist while it cooks. Serve this simple dish with a lettuce and vegetable salad and some soft breadsticks.
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
- ½ teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
- 6 6-ounce cod fillets
Preheat broiler. In small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, lemon juice, cheese, and tarragon, and mix well.
Place cod on broiler rack. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat source for about 4 minutes. Remove from oven, turn fillets, and spread mayonnaise mixture over each fillet.
Return pan to oven and broil for 3 to 5 minutes longer, until fish flakes when tested with fork and mayonnaise mixture begins to bubble and brown. Serve immediately.
Mayo: Low-Fat or Regular?
You can find mayonnaise in low-fat, no-fat, and regular versions; they all taste pretty much the same. You can use any type in most cooking recipes, salad dressings, and sandwich spreads. In baking, however, you should use full-fat mayonnaise unless the recipe says otherwise.
