Cajun Cod

I recent visited a restaurant whilst in Spain, and on the menu I’d noticed Cajun Cod!

I’d never eaten it before, so when I returned I couldn’t wait to try it out!

Below is the recipe for a similar dish I now eat regularly.

The Fish:

I used fresh cod fillets from Waitrose, however I also used frozen fillets from Aldi and as the Cajun spice pack so much flavour, they will taste good either way.

Ingredients: (Serves 2)

  • 2x Fresh skinless, boneless cod loin
  • 300-400g Fresh new potatoes
  • Garlic clove crushed
  • Good knob of butter
  • Fresh parsley
  • Chantenay carrots
  • Green beans
  • Tenderstem broccoli
  • Mini corn
  • Cajun spice
  • Salt & Pepper




  • Pre-heat oven to 200
  • Place new potatoes in steamer, along with carrots and steam for 25 mins
  • Prepare cod fillets by rubbing in Cajun spice, salt, pepper and wrapping in foil
  • Place cod in the oven for about 20 mins
  • Place corn, tenderstem broccoli and green beans into the steamer for 15 minutes
  • In a bowl, mix butter, chopped parsley and a bit of crushed garlic
  • When the potatoes are cooked, add to the above bowl and mix
  • Remove fish from the oven when cooked, and slightly flakely
  • Serve on a hot plate with butter potatoes and veg.


Thanks for reading my blog. I’m very new to blogging and would appreciate any comments, feedback or even a follow! Thanks. Pedro


  1. I’m guessing you mean 200 Celsius? Americans rarely say “whilst,” more’s the pity, so I bet I’m across the pond from you. I keep hoping the US will switch to Celsius, but I’m getting old waiting. Yours is the first post I’ve seen that made me want to buy a steamer. Everything looks so good!


    • Yes Julie I meant Celsius. I’m pretty new to blogging and from across the pond too so I’ll bear that in mind for future posts! The steamer is great. It was pretty cheap and is great for keeping the goodness in veg, but also for pre-steaming items before cooking to speed up the process. I will be posting a lot more recipes using my steamer so keep an eye out!

      • I was so pleasantly surprised to see visitors to my blog from all over the world. It took me a while to get in the habit of specifying Fahrenheit. How heavy is the steamer? I’m running out of counter space & wondering where I might store one.


      • I know it’s great though isn’t it? The steamer is relatively light, although once filled with water, and three tiers of vegetables it will weigh more than a few bags of sugar. It does store pretty well, as the tiers stack like Russian dolls. It can be awkward to put the parts in the dishwasher (if you use one that is), although it’s a lot easier than using 3 saucepans. Mone cost just over £30 (or just over $40) so it was well worth purchasing. I hope to see you post about your new steamer soon 🙂
