Grilled cod with crispy citrus salad

Grilled cod is paired with tangy citrus and crisp veggies to make a tempting dinner salad.

Cod has a mild flavor and flaky white flesh.

Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 8 ounces cod
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded kohlrabi
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded carrot
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (about 4 large cloves) or to taste
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 1 large grapefruit cut into segments (about 1 cup)
  • 1 medium orange cut into segments (about 1/2 cup)
  • Black pepper to taste


Spray a grill or broiler pan with cooking spray. Turn on grill or heat broiler. Place cod on grill or broiler pan and brush lightly with oil.

Grill or broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for about 10 minutes — or until fish flakes easily with a fork. The fish should reach an internal temperature of 145 F. Set aside.

In a large bowl, toss together remaining ingredients except for grapefruit and orange segments. Divide salad between two plates. Top with cod and citrus pieces and black pepper to taste.
