I love this recipe and tried it once. I will definitely try this once again but I am interested in having more new type of food.
Roast cod smothered in basil olive citrus marinade. Zesty tasty simple filling plate of food. Great with a salad, or minted peas.
• 260g Cod loin x2
• 10 black olives
• 2 tsp green pesto
• 1/2 tbs olive oil
• Zest from 1 lemon
• Juice from 1/2 lemon
• 2-3 cloves of garlic
• string of cherry tomatoes on the vine
• Salt & pepper
Pre heat the oven to 180°fan.
Put the garlic salt and coarsely ground black pepper in a pestle and mortar and pulverise it. The salt acts as an abraisive, making the garlic into a smooth paste.
Toss in the olives (pitted,otherwise the stones won't make this work) and continue to destroy.
Add in the pesto, olive oil, lemon zest & juice, stir, bruise, bash etc
Top the cod pieces with the mix. Rubbing a little underneath. Put the cod in a roasting pan, lay the vine tomatoes alongside, and place in the oven.
Roast for 20 minutes while you make a salad.
Mine was coz lettuce, peas boiled and cooled, nice peppers and mint. Dressed with lemon juice.
Enjoy with a good glad of red...
