Moroccan spiced cod with preserved lemon (serves 2)

By Sophie Wilesmith

Packed with flavour, this authentic recipe is simple and makes an impressive centre piece


1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground turmeric
A good pinch of salt and pepper
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
2 preserved lemons, minced
2 cod fillets


Put ingredients into a pestle and mortar and mix to a paste.

Once all ingredients are mixed, place the cod in a bowl and carefully massage the marinade into the fillets. Cover or put into a sealed bag for the flavours to infuse and leave for at least two hours in the fridge to marinate.

Once marinated, BBQ the fillets on both sides, gently turning so the fish doesn’t flake. Cook until firm and golden.
