Try this beauty of a Fish Burrito Bowl. With a lean source of protein, powerful flavours and freshness, it makes for a new favorite recipe!

Ingredients

  • 475 g frozen cod fillets (£2.99)
  • 5 limes (£1.05)
  • 8 salad tomatoes (£0.49)
  • ½ red onion (£0.67/3)= (£0.23)
  • 1 tin of black beans (£0.75)
  • 500 g (2 packets) wholegrain microwave rice (£0.90)
  • Bunch of fresh coriander (£0.32)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • Salt

Method

*Defrost the fish in warm water or in the fridge overnight*

  • Start by adding the defrosted cod into a large mixing bowl. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil, the juice of a lime, 1 tsp of chilli powder, 1 tsp cumin and ½ tsp of paprika. Gently move the cod so that it is evenly coated. Cover and pop in the fridge.
  • Finely dice the tomatoes (removing the inner juicy bit) and red onion. Add into a mixing bowl with the juice of 1 lime and some roughly chopped coriander. Season with salt.
  • In a blender, add the black beans (with the water) and a tsp of cumin. Season with salt and blend a little.
  • Add 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan on a high heat and pour in the black bean mix and fry until you get a dip like consistency.
  • Clean the pan and remove the cod from the fridge.
  • Add a tbsp of olive oil into the frying pan on a med/high heat. Fry the cod on each side for 4 minutes.

Serve with the heated rice, black bean sauce, tomato salsa and top with the fried fish, fresh cori with a squeeze of lime xxx

    (Keep the salsa and coriander separate from the meal prep containers so you can serve it cold after heating up the rest.)
