I thought that it was about time I shared this delicious fish recipe with you , because it received quite a lot of attention on my Instagram feed. And it received a pretty good reception from the boy and I when I dished it up as part of our Spring healthy eating regime (which actually just consists of eating healthy rounded meals during the week, with no chocolate or naughty snacking, and allowing ourselves some treats at the weekend. Simple and we both feel better).
INGREDIENTS (Serves 2, Prep time: 24 hours, cook time: 7 minutes
- 2 cod fillets or loins
- 160g of King Prawns (or there a bouts)
- 5 tbsp runny honey
- 4 tbsp soy sauce
- 4 – 5 tbsp toasted sesame seed oil (to taste, the more you put in the more of a woody taste you get, so if you prefer it to be sweeter opt for a bit less)
- 5 tbsp cup apple cider vinegar
- Freshly ground pepper
- 1/4 – 1/2 tsp ground ginger dependent on taste
I served this with sweet potato wedges and spinach. If you want to follow suit you need to get your wedges in before the fish. I would allow 30 – 40 minutes. Slice your potatoes and drizzle some more of the sesame seed oil and cider vinegar over them (not too much though). Then I just steamed the spinach which only took a few minutes.
Combine all ingredients (except for fish) in a mixing bowl. Add cod and prawns, and marinate for 24 hours, covering the bowl with a lid or cling film.
Preheat oven to 200 C. Remove the cod from marinade and bake on the center rack for 7-9 minutes, until cod is opaque and flakes easily. Throw in the prawns a couple of minutes before it is finished, so that they don’t overcook. I drizzled a little bit of honey over the cod again at this point – if you have some left it just lifts it but not essential if you don’t!
Serve with your chosen accompaniments
