• Steamed cod with curried mussels & carrots

    The pearlescent cod is, of course, the focal point of this beautifully simple recipe, but the creamy, curried sauce studded with plump mussels and julienned carrots almost steals the show. A wonderfully easy dish to put together – serve with potatoes or seasonal greens to turn it into a fuller meal.

     

    Dr Jenna Macchiochi's nutrition notes:

    "This is a really rich and satisfying dish – a great, healthy alternative to a typical takeaway – and perfect for the start of the new year when transitioning from indulgent Christmas food while it's still cold outside. Mussels are one of the most well-rounded foods to include in your diet, high in zinc, iron and other minerals, vitamins A and B12."
