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.

Prep time: 15 mins | Cook time:  15 mins | Total time: 30mins

serve 2


  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 long-grain white rice
  • 2 small Cod fillets
  • 2 tsp.sea salt
  • 2 tsp. Black Pepper
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 c. fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper


  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.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together the paprika, garlic powder, thyme, cayenne, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 pinch teaspoon pepper. Brush the lemon juice over the Cod, then coat in the spice mixture.
  4. Heat the remaining tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook the Cod in two batches, adding extra oil if necessary until the fish is beginning to blacken and is opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  5. Fluff the rice with a fork and fold in the parsley mixture. Serve with the fish and lemon wedges, if desired.
