Method

  1. Heat the grill pan to high, then line with double thickness foil and curl up the edges to catch the juices. Brush lightly with oil and put the cod on top. Sprinkle over the coriander, lemon zest and juice and drizzle with a little more of the oil. Season with salt and pepper, then grill for 10-12 mins until the fish flakes easily.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a pan. Add the onion and cumin and fry for a few mins. Add the carrots and stir well, then stir in the rice until glistening. Add the stock and bring to the boil. Cover and cook gently for about 10 mins until the rice is tender and the stock absorbed. Spoon the rice onto 4 warm plates, top with cod and pour over the pan juices.

Very tasty - went down well with whole family. I added some frozen broad beans to the rice during the last few minutes of it cooking.

Tried this recipe with afew alterations.

I used cobbler (apparently smoked is great but they didnt have any, the man on the fish counter recommended this) instead of cod (Cheaper and tastes fantastic), also added some smoked haddock.

Thanks to Debbie as added the spinach and the rice tasted fantastic and was not stoddy at all.

Will defienetly do this recipe again but only change next time as above is less lemon but also i might try it with one fish probably the cobbler :D

The fish was delicous, the rice was yummy and fluffy. Normally when I cook rice I produce stodgy gloopy mulch even after rinsing, so was super pleased when the rice turned out perfectly. A dish that will be a regular on my table.

The whole recipe was very good and the rice in particular was really nice cooked like this (the kids demolished it). I would do the rice again as a side dish with meat and other fish.

Absolutely delicious - will make again and again. I stirred baby spinach through the pilaff just before end of cooking to add even more goodness.
