Moroccan Cod and Bulgar Salad

Moroccan Cod

Here’s a super light fish dish for you to try. Do you like eating fish? I do, but sometimes I run out of inspiration on what to do with it!

What You Need

  • 10 oz. (300g) cod fillets
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp. turmeric
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • pinch of saffron
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Scant ½ cup (100g) of bulgur wheat or couscous
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 15 green olives, halved
  • 3 sprigs of parsley, chopped
  • lemon wedges, to serve

What You Need To Do

Drizzle the cod fillets with lemon juice. Then season with salt & pepper, rub with the garlic, and the rest of the spices, coat with 1 tbsp. of oil. Leave for half an hour to marinade, if you have time.

Cook the bulgur in salted water (about 15 minutes) and once cooked set aside. Place the chopped tomato in a salad bowl, add in the chopped onion, olives and parsley. Season with salt & pepper, mix and set aside.

Heat the pan, and fry the cod for about 3-4 minutes each side, until cooked throughout, then remove from the pan.

Heat the cooked bulgur on the same pan, with the remaining juices, then divide between plates. Serve with the cod and top with the earlier prepared tomato salad. Serve with lemon wedges
