Spicy Cod Bake – with courgettes

Spicy Cod Bake


Spicy Cod Bake with Courgettes

A super Spicy Cod Bake  with courgettes recipe that’s an all in one super dish!

So easy peasy to prepare ahead and then simply bang in the oven, go away and ta-dah dinner’s ready.

Do you eat enough fish? I’m not sure I do! This is a great recipe promise

It’s super low carb too (only the breadcrumbs).

One of the reasons I think  it works so well is the wonderful combination of the sweetness of the tomatoes,  the sharpness of the lemon juice and a kick of spice from the chilli.

I make it very often – so tasty and so flipping easy!

My friend does this recipe with chicken strips and says it’s lovely too! I haven’t tried it yet but I really must!

You need to give it a go, really you do – my go to simple, easypeasylemonsqueezy supper.

IF you are SW you can leave the breadcrumbs out! But if you can spare the syns I suggest you make fresh ones as it give it a lovely crunch! And on SW I miss the crunch!

Courgettes or Zucchini

Courgettes areAlso called Zucchini (usually in the U.S)!

So what do these courgettes/ zucchini’s contain from a nutritional point of view?

Well they contain significant amounts of vitamins B6, riboflavin, folate, C, and K, and minerals, like potassium and manganese. Also know as a summer squash they also contain antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.

This makes zucchini, also known as courgette, a nutrient-dense food that you should include in your diet.
