Turkish Spiced Cod

The second day in the Cotswolds I got out my spices I had bought in the Istanbul Spice bazaar and cooked cod for my Grandparents. We got a great deal on the fresh cod in the grocery store this dish is a twist on the British classic!


  • 2 fillets of cod
  • about 2 tablespoon of Turkish fish spice mix
  • one pack of new potatoes
  • one bunch of fresh parsley
  • one cup of 2 % milk
  • one tablespoon of corn flour
  • one tablespoon of butter
  • any desired vegetables

  1. Simply coat the fish with the spices and cook on a medium heat in a little olive oil with a lid for about 7 minutes
  2. meanwhile boil the potatoes and vegetables
  3. make a white parsley sauce by heating the butter, adding the flour to make a roux and then slowly stirring in the milk, add the parsley and allow to thicken.

This was enjoyed by all, it was such a joy to cook for Grandma and Granddad ;-)

the fish mix is coming up in the giveaway, watch this space!!
