    Honey & sesame cod

    • Low Fat
    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 50 minutes

    Serves: 4


    2 tbsp olive oil
    4 x 125g cod loin fillets
    1 tbsp plain flour
    2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
    2cm piece fresh ginger, finely chopped
    1 tsp dried chilli flakes
    3 tbsp sherry vinegar
    2 tbsp honey
    1 tbsp sesame seeds
    ½ x 25g pack flat-leaf parsley, chopped

    For the mash
    1 large cauliflower
    750ml Cooks’ Ingredients Vegetable Stock, hot
    2 tbsp half fat crème fraîche


    1. For the mash, break the cauliflower into florets, put in a pan, pour over the stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 20 minutes until very tender. Drain away most of the stock reserving two tablespoons. Transfer the cauliflower to a food processor with the reserved stock and crème fraîche and whizz until very smooth. Keep warm.
    2. Heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Dust the fish with the flour and fry in the pan for about 3-5 minutes each side until golden and cooked throughout. Set aside.
    3. Add the remaining oil to the pan, add the garlic, ginger and chilli and cook over a very low heat for just 30 seconds. Add the vinegar and honey and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the sesame seeds and cook for a further 1 minute.
    4. Spoon the mash onto serving plates. Place the fish on top and spoon over the sauce, and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
