12 frozen cod fillets
6 cups water
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons salt
1 1/2 cups butter, melted (not margarine)
- Preheat broiler.
- Place fish in a large saucepan. Mix together water, sugar, and salt; pour over fish. Water should cover fish; add more if necessary. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil for 3 to 5 minutes.
- Remove fillets from water, and blot on paper towels to remove excess water.
- Place on a lightly oiled baking sheet. Brush with 6 tablespoons melted butter, and sprinkle with paprika.
- Broil for 8 to 10 minutes per inch of thickness, or until fillets are golden brown. Serve with remaining melted butter.
