Mediterranean Style Grilled Fish
Servings 4

Instead of the usual breaded and fried fish, this fish is grilled,
Mediterranean style. You may substitute swordfish, halibut, sea bass or any
other whitefish, and the nutrients are similar.

1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 cod fillets, each 6 ounces
Cracked black pepper, to taste
4 green olives, chopped
4 thin slices lemon

Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from
the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray.
Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source. In a small bowl,
combine the minced garlic, basil, parsley and lemon juice. Place aluminum foil on
a baking sheet or a grill-pan designed for grilling seafood. Spray with cooking
spray. Place fish on aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Top each fillet
with equal amounts of the garlic mixture. Sprinkle with black pepper. Grill over
medium heat, turning once, until the fish is opaque throughout when tested with the
tip of a knife, about 10 minutes. Garnish with green olives and lemon slices.
Serve on warmed plates.
