Cajun Cod with Puy Lentils

This is such a quick, easy recipe. The smoked paprika in the sauce gives it a lovely flavour. @merchantgourmet cooked puy lentil pouches are really convenient and cut the cooking time considerably.

Spicy Cod Tacos

Spicy cod tacos with a sweet corn, pineapple, avocado and lime salsa.

I got this recipe idea from @carlsbadcravings I used @morrisons cook from frozen cod steaks and seasoned them with chilli powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano and brown sugar. Then I baked them in the oven for 30 mins.

For the salsa- I had 2 left over corn on the cobs from our bbq on Saturday so I used these and added half a pineapple finely chopped, 1/2 red onion finely chopped, 1 avocado chopped, juice of half a lime and chopped coriander. Serve with warm tortilla wraps and natural yoghurt. It was so delicious- we’ve never had a pineapple salsa before or used the left of corn on the cob but we’d definitely do it again.
