Spicy coconut cod

Published Saturday, 07 November, 2009 by themum

Cod cooked with coconut milk and spices



  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 3-4 green chiliis (depending on how hot you like it)
  • 1 large clove of garlic (or 2 small cloves)
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • A 2cm cube of fresh ginger grated
  • Rind and juice of a lemon
  • Some nice chunky cod fillets
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil


Put the oil in a pan and add onion, garlic, ginger, chopped chillis and cumin. Fry gently until soft. Add the lemon rind and lemon juice. Stir around then add the coconut milk. Cook until hot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the fish and put a lid on the pan. Cook gently for 5-10 mins depends how thick your fish is. Check it is cooked by seeing if it flakes easily. Really important to get fish just cooked and not over cooked.
