A delicious and affordable fish meal


  • 23 cod fillets
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • some pepper
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or canola oil


  1. Wash your fresh or thawed fillets under current cold water and dry them with a paper towel.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan. (The pan should be really hot)
  3. Mix flour with salt and pepper on a plate.
  4. Once the pan is almost hot, turn the cod in the flour mixture and tap the excess off. (It should be just a light dusting of flour!)
  5. Fry cod in hot oil at medium heat until golden – 2-4 minutes per side. (Resist the temptation to move it and turn it only one time to prevent fish from falling apart)


  • For a lean meal serve it with a large mixed salad or some steamed vegetables.
