Weekend Recipe: Grilled Cod and Summer Squash Packets
Summer squash and tomatoes cook at the same rate as the fish. In this recipe from Cook's Country, an easy microwave garlic oil adds depth.
For an easy weeknight dinner on the grill, we paired cod with summer squash and tomatoes, which all cook at the same rate. We made a quick microwave garlic oil for depth of flavor and then we placed everything in a foil packet, where it cooked in just 10 minutes.
