Healthy Fish & Chips

Hola foodies!

Finally, Spring is here! Yay!

For today, I made cod with potatoes and scrambled eggs. Ok, it’s not fish and chips, but I did get your attention! I like fish and chips just as much as the next person, but sometimes   I want to eat something that’s not fried. To be sure, this is not the classic recipe, but I think it’s a healthier version of it.

The beauty of the recipe is that you can make it in less than 30 minutes, it’s the perfect dish for a week night dinner. Its also a great dish to “hide” some fish for those in the house that don’t eat fish.

Ingredients for 4 servings:

  • 4 portions of cod, fresh or previously frozen- cut into chunks
  • 10 oz potatoes (2 or 3 large potatoes)- peeled and sliced thinly
  • 1 onion- sliced very thin
  • 4 eggs
  • parsley
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil

In a non-stick pan, heat 1/2 cup of vegetable oil on medium high heat and cook the onion and the potatoes until soft and a little browned. Remove from the pan and transfer to paper towel to remove excess oil.

Drizzle some olive oil in another pan on medium heat, and cook the cooked onions and potatoes along with the cod. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 5-6 minutes, until the cod is cooked. Add the eggs and stir until the eggs are scrambled.

Transfer the mixture into a baking dish or into individual baking dishes. Broil for about 2 minutes. Sprinkle some chopped parsley on top. Classic Spanish flavors with a twist and a healthier way to serve fish and chips.

Hola y Bienvenido/a! Hello and Welcome! My name is Ivette and I am a dual citizen! Originally, I from Catalonia, Spain but in 2014 I moved to the United States and I currently live in Maryland with my husband Richard (number 1 taster, thank you!), my baby girl Beulah my rescue dig Vicky and my two (big!) cutie cats Pintxo & Pastifa. Full house! I love Spanish food. In Spain there is always something to celebrate, gathering with friends and family… We have THREE dishes at every meal! Yes, 3! You will have a first full dish like pasta and for the second dish you will have fish/meat and then dessert, and after dessert coffee…. When I am in Spain and get together with my family (there are 31 of us!), we can start lunch at 2:30pm and finish it at 7pm… I have always loved cooking. My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in college, my favorite breaks, were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school. In this blog, I would like to share some Spanish recipes as well as other delicious recipes. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at Bon profit!

  1. If I ever see fish and chips on a menu there’s no way I’m ordering anything else. I love that you made a healthy version to eat at home!
