Ling Cod in a Salty, Sour Lemon Ginger Sauce

Surfin’ Seafood dropped off this month’s shipment of fresh fish, so we’re busy whipping up fish recipes. This one is great for weeknights – fast, healthy & delicious.

Boil up a pot of water and cook two servings of udon noodles. At the same time, heat up some sesame oil in a frying pan and cook a pound or so of cod over medium heat until it loses its transparency. Then add to the pan the juice of two squeezed lemons, a chopped clove of garlic, a tablespoon of grated ginger, several tablespoons of soy sauce, and a splash or two of mirin if you have it.
