Under 30: Baked Cod with Black Olives

Welcome to another brand new series; this month we'll be creating various dishes that only take 30 minutes or less to prep and cook. As we are full time workers and gym enthusiasts, we are always looking for quick and easy (mostly healthy) recipes to make! We hope you enjoy this series and do let us know if you create any of them and what you thought!


This is actually a tad but similar to something we created in our last series, which you can find here but with a few difference, either way both just as tasty! If you're a fan of cod, you'd love this dish!

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 5 mins | Cook Time: 12 mins


Ingredients:


- 4 x 150g cod or haddock fillets (£6)
- 1tbsp olive oil
- 1 large yellow pepper (50p)- 1 clove garlic

- 4 peeled plum tomatoes (£1)
- 1tbsp (20g) red pesto (£1)
- 8 stoned black olives, sliced (£1)
- pinch saffron strands, optional
- 1tsp smoked paprika
- handful parsley leaves, chopped
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste

Total: £9.50


Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 190C and dry the fish on kitchen paper.  Brush a non-stick baking tray with a little of the oil and sit the fish fillets on the brushed area.

2. In a small non-stick frying pan, fry the de-seeded and chopped yellow pepper over medium heat for 10 minutes until softened and slightly tinged gold, then add the peeled, chopped garlic and stir for a minute.  Add the tomatoes (no juice), pesto, saffron and paprika and stir for 2 minutes, then stir in the olive slices and chopped parsley, plus seasoning to taste.  Cook for a further minute then spoon the mixture onto the tops of the fish fillets. Bake for 12 minutes or until fish is just cooked through and topping is bubbling.

  2. YES! I live for under 30 minute meals, I do occasionally like to spend ages in the kitchen but often I just can't be bothered 😂 Since going pescaterian I'm always looking for new ways to cook fish, and as I'm a big olive lover, I'll definitely try this out!

  5. I really love fish when it's cooked well, and this looks amazing! I really like how you use affordable ingredients too. I see some recipes and they use crazily expensive ingredients, so it's nice to see recipes that I could actually afford! :D
