How To Make Pan-Fried Cod dusted in Spelt Flour and Coconut & Served on Quinoa By Honest MumThis is one of my all time favourite recipes.

So fresh and delicious, it really does taste as flavoursome as it looks. In fact, just a few weeks ago when I shared a picture of this dish on my Facebook page, I was met with multiple requests to post the recipe.

So for everyone who was drooling over this delectable dish, you’re in luck, as I’m sharing the recipe for this week’s #TastyTuesdays.

Pan-Fried Cod dusted in spelt flour and coconut and served on quinoa with garlic and onions.

I love the taste and texture of this dish. The coconut brings in East Asian influences, which works wonderfully with the nuttiness of the black quinoa.

I like to use Quinola Mothergrain.

As it is such fine quality, there’s no need to rinse the grain before cooking – reducing prep time and making it perfect for busy parents. I recently reviewed their range which you can read here.

As the cod is dusted in spelt flour, it is both wheat-free and gluten-free. Quinoa is also gluten free.

I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to share your own food posts via the linky below!

Pan-Fried Cod dusted in spelt flour and coconut and served on quinoa with garlic and onions.

cod and quiona

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 2 tbsp of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 white onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves of garlic, sliced finely
  • 160g Quinola Mothergrain Black Grain
  • 300ml organic vegetable stock, boiled
  • 2 x boneless and skinless, sustainably caught cod fillets.
  • 50g of spelt flour
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Juice of 1/2 a lemon

Method 

Heat your olive oil in a shallow/ pan, cook the onion and garlic for around 7-10 minutes until they are soft and the garlic has turned a golden brown.

Add the quiona, fry for around 1 minute before adding the vegetable stock.

Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer and cover with a lid. When the quinoa is ready, make sure you drain it well as the grains retain water.

Cooking time depends on how you like your quinoa to taste. Here’s a handy guide for red quinoa:

For crunchy, cook for 12-13 minutes

For al dente, cook for 14 minutes

For soft, cook for 16 – 19 minutes

For super soft, cook for 20+ minutes

While your quinoa is cooking, prepare and fry your cod.

First, add the spelt flour and salt/pepper to a bowl. In a second bowl, add the egg. Coat both fillets in the spelt flour mix and then follow by coating in the egg mixture. Ensure that the whole fillet is covered.

Add the coconut oil to the pan and turn the heat to medium. Add the crusted cod to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on each side until lightly browned.

When the quinoa is ready remove from the pan and remove any excess water. Serve the cod and quinoa together, seasoning with salt and pepper and lemon juice.

    This looks delicious! I’ve had some quinoa in my cupboard for months now & I’ve never really known what to do with it. My other half would love this though.

    I’m so impressed that you’ve managed to get back to healthy eating so close to Christmas, I’ve pretty much written it off until the new year! This cod sounds delicious which must have made being good all the easier.

    I’m so pleased with myself for remembering to link today! I used to get reminders every week, but they’ve gone so my baby brain rarely remembers to link these days, he he! Your recipe is the kind of thing I’d order at the restaurant. I love cod, but I don’t cook much fish at home. I haven’t had quinoa in ages and I love it. Feeling hungry now!
