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