Little Green Spoon’s Sun-dried Tomato Seed Crusted Cod

This dish is a really special Flakey cod draped in sun dried tomato paste and coated in crispy seeds- it’s to die for! It can be hard to make restaurant quality fish at home but this is definitely on par and oh so simple. A beautiful, easy dinner in just a few minutes.

Serves 2

2 Cod Fillets
2 Tablespoons of Sunflower Seeds
2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Seeds
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of Sun-dried Tomato Paste
Coarse Salt

Step 1: Add the seeds to your food processor and pulse until you have a gritty seed flour.
Step 2: Transfer the seeds to a bowl and drizzle in one tablespoon of olive oil and a good pinch of coarse salt, then mix everything together. I also like to add about a teaspoon of each of the seeds so that there’s a few whole ones for texture and decoration.
Step 3: Line your roasting tin with tin foil and lay out your cod fillets.Add about a teaspoon of sun dried tomato paste on top of each and spread it out evenly using a knife.
Step 4: Then use a spoon to add on the seed coating, using the back of the spoon to press the coating into the sun dried tomato paste.
Step 5: Bake at 180’C for about 13 minutes, until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the seeds and golden and toasted. I served mine with mashed sweet potato and roasted asparagus.
