Lemon, Ginger, and Dill Cod Parcels.

Outdoor cooking lemon ginger and dill cod parcels tasty outdoor treats www.mammasschool.co.ukThis week’s tasty treat is a savoury lemon, ginger, and dill cod parcel.  My trio were not that keen to try it, but once I explained that it is exactly what is in fish fingers (wink wink), they were more than happy to give it a go.  Plus, I always find it tastes better to them when they have helped in the preparation! The cod parcels are very easy, and we had a few extras to beef up our meal as well.



What you need for the cod parcels are the following:

Fresh cod

Ground ginger

A lemon (and a knife)

Dill (and some scissors)

We added a bread roll, some corn on the cobs, and some butter to spread onto both.

For the first part of the preparation of the cod parcels, our little lady chopped up the lemon into slices.  Then ginger was sprinkled over the cod, which was sat on tin foil.  Next she chopped (with scissors) some dill all over the top of the cod, before laying the lemons over.  The cod parcel was then closed (the foil was wrapped round), and placed on the fire, together with the corn on the cob (a knob of butter with it, again wrapped in foil).


They can all take around 10 minutes depending on the strength of your fire (ours was good today), but if it’s not ready, just put it back on to finish.  Once cooked through, remove from the foil, add your bread roll, and tuck in 🙂
