MARINADE THE COD

This is a very simple way of marinating your fish in a bag by adding all your ingredients together and letting it marinate over a number of hours.

You can even cook in this bag, once it is sealed by placing into water at 50c-60c. It will only take between 8-12 minutes to cook depending on the size of the fish.

Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well. Place your fish in the bag, then pour in the marinade and roll up tightly. Fold over the end so the fish is in a nice tight place in the bag. Then place in the fridge for a min of 2-6 hours. You can add other spices like smoked paprika, dried chili flakes, curry powder, turmeric and then other citrus fruits such as lime and orange. Feel free to add herbs such as basil, dill and tarragon.

Remove from the bag and place onto a baking tray with the paper. Add a little more seasoning and place into the oven and bake at 140c for approx 10-12 minutes. Finish with a little lemon juice.
