This week’s recipe is a similar concept to the roast lemon chicken that I love to do and can also be a super easy, yet an impressive enough looking meal for guests. We like those.
FRENCH STYLE ROASTED COD
source – very old delicious magazine
450g potatoes, peeled & cubed
1 garlic bulb
4 roma tomatoes
4 rosemary sprigs
3 tbs olive oil
4 x 150g thick boneless cod fillets
(or any soft fish)
4 tbs white wine
Salt & Pepper
Handful of Fresh Basil Leaves to Garnish
Preheat oven to 220C.
Cook potato in large pan of boiling water for 10 mins until almost tender & starting to crumble slightly around edges.
Drain potato well and transfer to large roasting dish.
Break garlic bulb & nestle between potatoes.
Roughly chop tomatoes & scatter over the top with the rosemary. Season generously, then drizzle over 2 tbspns of the olive oil. Roast for 15 mins.
Add the cod fillets to the pan, allowing them to rest on top of the vegies. Drizzle the remaining oil over the top, season the fish & cook for 5 mins. Splash in the wine & cook for a further 5
mins until the fish is just cooked.
Tear over the basil leaves & serve straight from the pan.

OTHER IDEAS I’VE FOUND…
*Sanitarium sends weekly recipe emails with great meal ideas that are always super healthy. Check out healthy recipe ideas for kids on their website, as well as other great dinner recipes on their website. The recipes even have a difficulty scale and tells you how long it takes to prepare and cook each meal.
*This is one of my sons favourite books and it struck me that it might be a nice subliminal (or more deliberate) tool for a fussy-eating, dinosaur-loving child.
