People can get very hung up on their recommended daily allowance stats but I think that provided you are eating a balanced diet then it doesn't matter. You might not like this but I think the best "diet" as such is just eating a bit less. Certainly from my experience I know that when I am at home I eat soooo much more than when I am at university. This is because food is kind of 'on tap' at home. And the more I eat, the more I want to eat! But when I am at university I have to cook everything and buy everything so I don't really over-eat (although I do binge on Tesco Cookies every now and again!).
Anyhow, this is a a splendid recipe and a great meal. This recipe covered 3 people but it could easily do 4.
- 500g cod
- 3 tbs mayonnaise
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- Breadcrumbs (one thick slice of bread, toasted and blended)
- Handful parsley, chopped
- Half a lemon
- Salt and pepper
- Cherry tomatoes, halved
Crush the garlic and mix it with the mayonnaise in a bowl. In an ideal world, let it stand for half an hour so the flavour infuses.
Now lay the cod on a lightly oiled baking tray (so it doesn't stick) and spread the garlic mix on top.
Lightly toast the bread then blitz in a blender to make breadcrumbs. Chuck them in a bowl and then chop in the parsley. Use a grater to zest the lemon and then squeeze all the juice in. Season with a little salt and plenty of pepper. Toss the breadcrumbs with a fork/other utensil!
Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the cod and garlic mayonnaise. Pop the tomatoes in the baking tray with the fish.
Cook at 200 for 13 minutes (or thereabouts - the top should be golden brown and the fish should flake beautifully).
