Ingredient of the Week: Cod

Cod is a popular, white, saltwater, fish found in both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. They are found in the deeper, colder water and are from the same family as haddock and monkfish. Its ocean origin slightly alters the  nutritional value, but either way it is…

Lemon & Coriander Cod with Carrot & Cauliflower Pilaf

Lemon & Coriander Cod with Carrot & Cauliflower Pilaf

I don’t generally bother to grate my vegetables in recipes, as it adds an extra step in preparation, which means it takes longer. Also the grater I have is not very good, so I find it time consuming and too much hard work. But for…

Hoisin Cod with Crispy Omelette Cake

Hoisin Cod with Crispy Omelette Cake

Ok, so this might not be the prettiest of meals to look at, but its tasty and nutritious. Its also quick to make and a little different to your usual noodle stir-fry. Often fish fillets are quite small and so don’t contain enough protein for…

Steamed Oriental Cod & Vegetables

Steamed Oriental Cod & Vegetables

Using a steamer is not something I do very often. This recipe however, has swayed me to use it more. It was so simple to make and as a bonus, incredibly nutritious. Steaming is one of the best ways to cook vegetables as it helps…

Making Pesto

Making Pesto

Since getting my Vitamix, one of the things I’ve regularly enjoyed making is pesto. Pesto is a typically green sauce, originating from Genoa in Italy. It traditionally contains pine nuts, parmesan cheese, garlic, basil and olive oil. In the past, all the ingredients were crushed…

Ingredient of the Week: Hake

I always associate hake with Mallorca. This is because on the first British Cycling training camp I went on back in 2010, every night we would have to choose between hake or steak for our tea and that was basically all I ate for the…

Coley is a white fish coming from the same family as cod. Even though it is classed as white, it has a slightly darker colouring than cod and has a stronger, denser texture that doesn’t flake as easy. It tastes slightly more meaty and earthy…

A while back now I wrote a post about how I handle and prepare fish and my frustrations and limitations with it. I still have many of these restrictions, but I have discovered an exciting new way of trying different and new fish and increasing…

Kedgeree

Kedgeree

Surprisingly, as it usually consists of rice, smoked fish, boiled eggs and curry spices, kedgeree is traditionally served at breakfast time. It has origins in both British and Indian cuisine. I must admit it doesn’t really appeal to me for breakfast, but I do love…

Caponata With Steak

Caponata With Steak

A caponata is a mixed Mediterranean vegetable stew, traditionally starring aubergine. However I came across this one on BBC Good Food using pepper, tomatoes and celery, which were all the ingredients I had at the time and so I decided to give it a go.…

Miso Fish With Cabbage & Samphire Stir-Fry

Miso Fish With Cabbage & Samphire Stir-Fry

For this recipe I use tusk, a white fish similar to cod or haddock. I’ve never knowingly had it before, but was sent it in last month’s Fishox selection. It was very nice, quite mild in taste and fairly meaty. I would happily eat it…
