Flaky Cod with Ginger and Quinoa


Love ‘one pot cooking…no mess, no stress and tastes great! There are times when pottering around  your kitchen with a glass of vino and your favourite  play list is just what you need and there are times you want minimum fuss and maximum pleasure!

For the times you don’t want to potter around in the kitchen.  This one is ready in 20min :)))



Cooking time 20min

Serves 3-4

1 cup of quinoa to two cups water

400g cod (4 medium fillets)

1 inch of ginger grated

1 heaped tsp of salt

½ tin of plum tomatoes

1-2 green chilies (finely chopped, to taste)

½ tsp garam masala

½ a lemon

large handful of spinach


Add a cup of quinoa to a saucepan and double the amount of cold water.  Add the salt, garam masala, chilies and finely grated ginger and bring to the boil then simmer on a low heat with the lid on.  The quinoa should take about 15-20 minutes to cook.  If you have frozen cod fillets then add after 5 minutes, if you have fresh cod fillets add half way through.  When adding the cod, the tomatoes and spinach can be added.  You will know its ready when the water has evaporated and the fish nice and flaky.  Add to a bowl with a good squeeze of lemon…so satisfyingly good!
