Grilled cod fillet?

Has anyone ever grilled a fillet of cod (without the skin) without a grill basket or anything?  I was planning on grilling some mahi mahi to have with a mango som tum, but it turned out that I don't have enough of it, so I defrosted a couple of pieces of cod.  Thinking about it now, I'm wondering if it's just going to fall apart completely on me and that maybe I should rethink this a bit...  maybe wrap in banana leaves prior to grilling?  If it matters, it's indoor grilling on a grill pan.

On a grill pan I think you may be okay.  Many years ago, I did such a thing on a charcoal grill with a trout that I caught.  I will never do THAT again.

If you keep banana leaves on hand I'd go that route.  Adds flavor and eliminates a mess if it falls apart. Alternately if no leaves - foil but open so it does not just steam. I sometimes just crinkle up foil and lay fish on top and broil so I get grill effect but don't lose half the fish.

Do you have some bacon on hand? I use Speck, even with skin on. Easier to turn and the Speck holds the flesh in place. It shouldn't be cooked too long anyhow. Cod tends to flake easily.
