Margarita Cod Recipe Recipe

Tequila and limejuice combination add a flavor punch to this Margarita Cod Recipe. You won't taste the alcohol, but the tequila's smoky, herbal flavor will shine through.

When you're cooking the following recipe for Margarita Cod, choose the same brand of tequila you'd want to drink. Use fresh juice, not bottled, for a sprightly zing to the recipe.

And, in case your cocktail file doesn't include a margarita, here's how you make one:

Place a small amount of coarse salt on a plate, arranging it in a circle the diameter of margarita glass rims. Wet the rims of the glasses. Dip rim-side down in the salt. Turn the glasses upright and set aside to dry.

Meanwhile fill a cocktail shaker half full with ice. Add 4 ounces tequila, 3 tablespoons Triple Sec and the juice of 1 large lime in the shaker. If you want a tangier drink, add a little more limejuice. Cover the shaker and shake vigorously for 30 second. Strain into the glasses and garnish each with a lime wedge. Serve immediately to 2.
