Instructions

Prep

1 Prep

Add the quinoa to a bowl, cover with warm water and rinse. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. De-seed and roughly chop the pepper.
Tip! Washing quinoa with warm water before draining it, removes the bitter-tasting saponins from its surface.
Cook quinoa

2 Cook quinoa

Drain the quinoa in a fine sieve. Add the measured water to a pot and bring it to a boil. Add the quinoa and a pinch of salt. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 min or until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender.
Fry

3 Fry

Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over a medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. Once hot, add the onions with a pinch of salt and fry for 5 min or until starting to soften. Add the garlic and fry for 1 min. Add the tomato paste, tomato passata, jalapeno slices (spicy!), capers, dried oregano, stock cube, measured water and brown sugar. Simmer for 5 min.
Tip! Sensitive to spice? Go easy on the jalapenos!
Simmer cod

4 Simmer cod

Lower the heat to a medium. Add the cod, tomatoes and peppers and simmer, covered, for 8-10 min or until the cod is cooked through.
Tip! You can tell when white fish is cooked by checking if the flesh flakes easily.
Serve

5 Serve

Divide the quinoa and top with the cod and Veracruz sauce.
