Cod and salmon recipes

This is an excellent dish to reintroduce you to fish. A lot of people tend to avoid buying fish as it can be expensive, the bones off putting and alien to cook. People avoid cod and salmon recipes most of all as they seem to think it is difficult to cook.

Cod is a fab fish as it really absorbs the flavours easily, is super healthy and lean, however its also very expensive, so if you see a piece of Cod marked down grab it and either cook it that day or freeze it. Plus salmon is so good for you.

*There is also a recipe for beer battered Cod, minty peas and homemade chips on a previous blog.
