Fish Friday! I just love smoked fish. Have you ever tried smoked mackerel? I got to know it when I moved here, and I have to say it’s so tasty! Baked cod is amazing as well, you just need a great product and follow few tricks.
Getting to know that the fisherman van was coming in front of our place every Friday, was our lockdown gamechanger! We’re really lucky, from this point of view. We get to have the best food every Friday, freshly caught over the night.
I know fish and chips is the most famous scottish dish – maybe second to fried mars bars?- but I really find it too heavy! Also, there are so many ways you could cook cod or haddock!
This recipe is so easy, just be careful not to leave the fish in the oven for more than 15 min, otherwise it’ll overcooked and be really dry. Also, I suggest to serve it with my Crunchy Cauliflower as side. It’s the perfect pairing!

I do have a scientific mind, probably it’s the reason why I love to hide in the kitchen and start creating.
My cooking is healthy, fun and colorful… and really tasty!
