Makes 2 servings
- 2 (8 oz. pieces) fresh cod
- 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon, sliced
- fresh basil

How to make it
Place each piece of fish on a plate of heavy-duty aluminum foil (or a double layer of regular foil).

Fold in edges of foil to create a packet. Place packets on a hot grill for 10 minutes or until fish is opaque. Cool for 5 minutes. Serve with fresh lemon slices.
