COD SCAMPI WITH BUTTER SAUCE SEASONED WITH WORCESTERSHIRE – CAYENNE – WHITE WINE – DIJON – MINCED GARLIC – LEMON – PAPRIKA – PARSLEY

Of course originally intended for shrimp, but certainly tasty with cod. . .

For 2:

–cod (size of 2 decks of cards, one-half pound)

–butter or healthy margarine (I used Healthy Choice with olive oil; one-quarter cup, melted)

–Worcestershire sauce (1 tablespoon)

–cayenne pepper (one-quarter teaspoon; or to taste)

–white wine (2 tablespoons)

–Dijon mustard (1 tablespoon)

–minced garlic (1 tablespoon)

–lemon juice (3 squirts)

–paprika (1 teaspoon)

–parsley (dried, 1 tablespoon)

–salt and pepper to taste

1 – Place butter or healthy margarine in a Pyrex measuring cup. Microwave, covered, on high for 45 seconds. Then add other ingredients in list above, and stir well.

2 – Place cod in a covered baking dish. Pour sauce on top. Sprinkle more parsley on top.

3 – Microwave on high for 7 minutes. Cod is done when it begins to break apart.

4 – Serve the cod and sauce hot.
