Curried Cod

This deliciously tasty cod dish is so quick and easy to prepare, and is packed with iron and protein. The recipe is packed with traditional Indian flavours, of fiery ginger and zingy lemon and is low enough in calories to add some additional carbohydrates, such as a small portion of rice or cous cous – just add the calories.

If you can’t get cod; haddock, pollock, monkfish or any other white fish will do just as well, and they are all fairly low in calories.
