As it’s pancake day…… I’m having fish!!!

Because it was reduced and we all know I’m about that budget food with extra flavour and va va voom! 

2 cod loins 

8oz new potatoes 

A good handful of spinach

1oz fresh peas

1tsp fresh thyme, chopped

1/2tsp paprika 

1/2tsp dried thyme 

1/2tsp cumin seeds

3oz butter

Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 220c/gas 7.

In a large pan of boiling salted water over a high heat, add the potatoes and cook for 13-15 minutes or until tender.

While they’re cooking mix together the dried thyme, cumin seeds and paprika, season the fish with salt, pepper and the spice mix, wrap loosely in foil and place in the oven for 8-10 minutes.

In a small pan add the butter and fresh thyme. When the potatoes have cooked, crush them slightly, season and set aside but keep warm, in the same pan as the potatoes over a medium to high heat add a knob of butter along with the peas, spinach and a pinch of nutmeg, stir well and take off the heat. Back to the thyme beurre noistte, turn the heat up to high and keep stirring and just as the butter takes on a slightly brown colour it’s done.

By now the fish should be nicely cooked, so serve up.

Don’t waste them cooking juices in the foil! 

My fish was seasoned with spicenations recovery herb and spice blend, thanks to them guys for sending me their products
