Crispy cod pieces in honey and soy sauce


Hey lovelies,

Crispy cod in honey and soy whats not to love eh?

I’m always trying to get more fish into my guys, and although cod can sometimes be the easy way out, it works really well in this recipe. The honey adds a delicious sticky sweetness and the tang of the vinegar really evens the whole dish out. As you may already know I’m a huge Chinese food fan and this recipe is a huge nod to that.

lils went nuts for this one when she first tried it and declared that daddy is just going to love it (i shared the video to the home cooks fb group and we had a great laugh, she’s turning into a right little character.

(Ah, lads, I can believe shes for school in September!  its such a cliche but it does go in to fast)

I can wait to hear how your gang get on in this one, keep sending me your photos over on the page
