Spiced Cod with Orange pepper

Beautiful tasting fish, with green rice. The rice is a mix of parsley, pepper and olive oil which is a lovely way to dress your rice rather than gravy.

  • 2 small Cod fillets
  • 2 tsp.sea salt
  • 2 tsp. Black Pepper

  • 3 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme

  1. Cook the rice according to package directions.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the parsley, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper until finely chopped; set aside.
