Ginger Soy Cod is a simple recipe with a wonderful sauce. Keep a close eye on the sauce as you are cooking it because it will thicken very quickly. I like to put the fish on top of the rice then add the sauce. I like to the sauce to sink into the rice.
I like to cook fish outside on the grill because I don’t like my house to smell of fish. If you do the same be sure to use a cast iron pan that has a flat bottom. If you use a grill pan with slots on the bottom it will be impossible to make the sauce in the same pan and the fish will stick badly.
Cost Per Serving $6.28 as of May 2023
Fish is more expensive than other meats so the cost per serving is a lot higher. It is not really a budget friendly protein.
If you have ZERO ingredients then this recipe will cost about $25.13.
If you have a stocked pantry this dish will cost you about $19.16.
- Cost per serving reduces to $4.79.
I am assuming you have salt and pepper and do not add it into the recipe total cost.
