Marinating time 2 hours 30 minutes


  • 2 lb cod fillet
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 lime wedges and fresh parsley sprigs for garnish


  • To make the marinade, tear the bay leaf into 3 pieces. Place the bay leaf, oil, lemon juice, peeled garlic, coriander and seasoning in a shallow dish and whisk together with a fork.
  • Cut the fish into 4 pieces and immerse, skin sides up, in the marinade. Leave to marinate for at least 1 1/2 hours, turning and basting two or three times.
  • Preheat the grill. Place the pieces of fish in an ovenproof dish, skin side down, and spoon over the remaining marinade. Cook for 10 minutes under a moderately hot grill, basting occasionally with the marinade, until the fish is golden-brown.
  • Lift the pieces of fish from the dish and arrange on serving plates. Spoon over the remaining marinade and garnish each piece of fish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley. Serve immediately.
