Pum recommends…Cod Dinners

We all know eating fish regularly is highly recommended as it can give us omega-3 fatty acids which are essential for a healthy heart.  Cod is one of my favourite fish to cook myself at home because it has such a mild flavour and so is really versatile…great to combine with whatever you have left over in the fridge or in your cupboard.  Cod is also a pretty low calorie protein source and I do find I need to consciously think about how much protein I’m getting so this is a no-brainer for me!

I managed to get 2 large cod fillets which were reduced in the fish monger section of the big supermarket near me so I’ve had cod twice recently.  Both dishes were very simple and quick but packed with flavour due to the ingredients I added.

Pum’s Lemon Chilli Cod and Veg…

For this dish I simply added the fillet of cod with a handful of green beans and cherry tomatoes to an oven dish, drizzled in a little olive oil and the juice of half a lemon, topped the cod with slices of lemon and a good shake of dried chilli flakes all over.  In the oven for 15 minutess and this was done…perfect!

Pum’s Greek Salad Cod…

Greek salad was the inspiration behind this cod recipe.  I simply added the fillet of cod to a foil parcel with 2 tsp. dried oregano and chopped yellow and red tomatoes.  Cooked in the oven for 15 minutes and when removed topped with more dried oregano and some crumbled feta…unfortunately I didn’t have any olives but next time I’m adding them for sure.

I’m definitely starting to get back on track after my birthday week blow-out and these kind of lighter dinners are really making the difference for me.
