Cajun Grilled Cod Recipe

    4 Servings


  • 1 pound Fresh Atlantic Cod, (4 fillets)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons Cajun Seasoning
  • pinch of Salt
  • 4 teaspoons Olive Oil
For the Slaw:
  • 2 tablespoons Mayonnaise, (Paleo-friendly if needed)
  • 2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh Chopped Parsley, packed
  • 1/2 Green Bell Pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper, very thinly sliced
  • 1 rib Celery Heart, very thinly sliced
  • 1/8 large Onion, very thinly sliced


  1. Preheat your grill to medium high.
  2. Pat the cod dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle with the Cajun seasoning and sea salt and let stand 30 minutes at room temperature.
  3. Make 4 tinfoil packets by place two pieces of tinfoil on top of each other, placing one cod in the center of each. Drizzle each fillet with 1 tsp of olive oil and close the packets very tightly.
  4. Place the packets on the grill, folded side up, and grill until the fish is opaque and flaky, about 5-10 minutes depending on the size and thickness of the fillet. Once cooked, set aside to rest and cool for 5 minutes.
  5. While the fish cools, mix all the slaw ingredients, up to the parsley in a large bowl. Stir in the parsley.
  6. Add in the vegetables and stir until they’re well coated.
  7. Serve the slaw over the cod and DEVOUR!
