Pardon the mess on the plate. This is what happens when I underestimate the amount of food I’m cooking and then try and make a giant mountain all fit into too small a dish.
It may look like a mess, but this cod fish with paprika tasted wonderful, which is what counts.
I’m on a bit of a cod fish craze lately. When I say lately I mean since the last few months, ever since I had an amazing cod fish a restaurant, I have had this urge to want to cook it quite a lot. When I eat something that I really like in a restaurant, I have this tendency to analyze it and then try and make it myself at home. Do you do that?
This was cooked with spicy paprika, and I added some chilis from last year’s batch from my chili plant, just because I love spicy food. If you can’t tolerate too much spiciness, just add normal paprika and no additional chilis.
Ingredients (serves 3):
900 g cod fish – cut into steak sized pieces
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon spicy paprika
2 cloves garlic – sliced
3 teaspoons olive oil
Pour the flour into a dish then dab the cod fish onto the flour to cover each piece with a fine layer of flour.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan. Once its hot, add the cod fish. Add the garlic, sprinkle the paprika and chili on top. Add a tiny bit of salt but go easy because cod is already a naturally very salty fish. Cook on both sides until it looks cooked. It should take about 10 minutes.
Enjoy your meal!
