  • Place the fish in a large saucepan. Mix together the water, sugar, and salt. Pour the water-mixture over the fish. The water-mixture should fully cover the fish, if it doesn't add more water. Bring the water to a boil over a medium-high heat. Boil for 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Remove fillets from water, and blot on paper towels to remove excess water. Brush with 6 tablespoons melted butter, and sprinkle with paprika.

  • Broil for 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or until the fillets are golden brown. Serve with the remaining melted butter.

Awesome entire family loved it! The only thing I did different was adding only 1/2 cup splenda instead of 1 cup sugar to the water. Plus - I don't think you need quite as much butter I only used 3 tbsps while broiling. Read More

I know this was rated highly but it was so bland. Maybe if some garlic or something like that was added but it was very boring. Read More

This tastes just like lobster. My whole family loves this recipe. I've made it at least 4 times and I've had the best results when the cooked fish has time to chill and dry out in the fridge before broiling. I've used mostly frozen cod from Sam's Club. I'd like to try it with monkfish to see how that tastes. Read More

I decided to give this recipe a try in an attempt to serve fish that isn't battered and fried to my family. I followed the recipe exactly and the results were great. I have four kids and they loved this recipe! The 3-year-old had three helpings! I agree with other reviews that it has a lobster-like consistency and flavor. Husband has already requested I make this again and often! Thanks for the great recipe and a nice change of pace from the same old fish. Read More

Oh my gosh!! This is a fantastic recipe if you love lobster but it's beyond your pay grade. You need to adjust for the thickness of your fillets (boil/broil times) but this is dang close!! The sugar in the boiling mixture adds the sweetness and the texture of the cod is tender and delicious! I broiled the fish with less butter and ate it with no extra butter and it was still DELICIOUS!! How good would it be with extra buttah??? Will make again and again and again!! Read More

This was a great recipe! I used Market Day frozen cod poached it using Splenda instead of sugar and cut the amount of butter in half. I also chilled the cod before broiling it. Best of all the house didn't smell fishy after dinner! Read More

I cannot believe how easy this was and how good it was! My husband loved it. Even the two picky teenage girls thought it was great. I would not change a thing. Using the frozen filets was a great idea to help keep them together. I would only suggest to use a large deep skilett instead of a sauce pan so the filets don't bump together so much and fall apart. I've given the recipe out a lot since trying it. Read More

Just fabulous! I made this with a turnip gratin and my husband was just over the moon! References to this tasting like lobster are totally true! I'm a non-sugar person so I swap out for splenda and it still tastes wonderful! Thanks for a keeper! Read More
