Grilled Cod with Dill and Garlic

Low-amine True Cod marinating in garlic, dill, and ascorbic acid. The second cod fillet transformed into a salmon fillet for my lucky man, who is not amine-intolerant.

This simple entrée is fast and easy. Cod, when very fresh, makes a wonderful, light summertime entrée that’s low-amine and low-fat. You should count on one medium-sized fillet per hungry person.

2 true cod fillet

1 Tbsp fresh minced dill

2 Tbsp safflower oil

1/4 tsp ascorbic acid

1 Tbsp garlic, pressed

1/8 tsp salt

  • Mix all seasonings together with oil and rub on both sides of cod fillet. Marinate for at least 15 minutes.

  • Grill on medium heat on a grilling rack (so that the fish does not fall through the grill) until desired doneness is reached. It should be about 3 minutes on one side, and one or two on the other, depending on thickness.

  1. absolutely amazing – it just sounds so good.

    • It was tasty! I had assumed that one fillet would be enough for dinner and a light lunch. I was wrong. Ate the whole thing. Whoops.

      • Oh no, you must have more than one! Especially if it’s that delicious.

        • I wish I had made a few. I could have eaten them all!

          • I bet you could. I certainly would have.

  2. The salmon most appeals to me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Ascorbic Acid used in a recipe before though. Where did that idea come from?

    • I am not able to use citrus or citric acid due to my amine allergy, so I use ascorbic acid instead. It’s actually very helpful in many situations – you don’t get all the liquid, but you get 100% of the punch! You can buy it at supplement stores like GNC or Super Supplements. :)

  3. This sounds so good! I’ve been loving grilled fish this time of year!

  9. This is great! Thanks for all your recipes! Just as I started my blog persianpaleo.com I found out I have a histamine condition! So now I’ve fallen a bit behind on adding recipes to my blog because so many of my recipes were high in amines! But I’ve updated many recipes and will post soon! I can’t wait to try pomegranate juice/molasses instead of vinegar or lemon juice in salad dressings!

    • Ascorbic acid is great, too. Works wonders as a sour replacement. :)
