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.

Making a juicy burger is always a treat, especially with summer and grilling season upon us. But plain ‘ol hamburgers get a little boring, so I thought I would spice things up by making them low-amine Cajun Burgers and serve them up hot with caramelized onions. Delicious!

1 lb lean ground beef

1 Tbsp Cajun Seasoning Mix

1 1/2 Tbsp gluten-free breadcrumbs

1/4 tsp salt

2 Tbsp egg whites, beaten

1 Tbsp safflower oil

1 large sweet onion

2 Tbsp butter (or butter substitute for dairy-free)

3 gluten-free hamburger buns (depending on size of bun and whether you like your burgers super thick or “normal” patty thickness)

Condiments of choice: low-amine no-tomato ketchup substitutelow-amine no-tomato BBQ sauce substitutelow-amine mayonnaise

  • Mix beef, Cajun Seasoning Mix, breadcrumbs, salt, egg whites, and safflower oil together in a bowl. Knead until well mixed.
  • In a cast iron pan, heat butter and add sweet onion cut into “C” shaped rings.

  • On low heat, cook onions slowly and stir often to slowly caramelize. When caramelized, set aside and turn grill on high.
  • Turn grill to medium high and form beef into burger patties about 5″ across.
  • Grill until desired doneness. Flip burger when patty unsticks from grill easily – you should not have to scrape it off the grill, as the natural oils will allow the burger to “let go” of the grill when it’s ready.
