How To Make Sustainably Caught Baked Cod with Garlic, Coriander & Couscous By Honest Mum

Sustainably Caught Baked Cod with Garlic, Coriander & Couscous.

As the colder nights creep in, it can be tempting to throw your healthy diet out the window in favour of hearty grub and well….stodge basically.

However, it is possible to make healthy and filling dishes for your family such as my sustainably caught baked cod with roasted garlic, parsley, lemon and couscous my children love.

Couscous is an excellent choice. It’s low in fat and converts to glucose more slowly than refined carbohydrates. Plus, it also swells in the stomach filling you up quickly and from smaller portions.

Cod is a also an excellent source of heart-healthy fats and omega 3.
