  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Step 2

    In a small skillet, melt the butter. Add the onions and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until translucent and aromatic.
  3. Step 3

    Add the white wine and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Brush the fish fillets with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the fish on a well-oiled grill rack, close the lid, and cook for 8 minutes.
  5. Step 5

    Baste the cod with the butter sauce and then carefully flip over the fish. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes—basting the fish a total of 2 to 3 times—until the fish is opaque, flakes easily with a fork, and reaches an internal temperature of 145 F.
  6. Step 6

    Remove the cod from the grill. Spoon some of the sauce on top of each fillet and serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy.
