    Katelicous's Note:

    This dish has quickly become a family favourite. Easy, healthy and delicious, with just the right amount of spiciness. The recipe as-is can come out more like a stew, so if you want it to be a plate (not bowl) dish, decrease the liquid a little and be careful as the cod releases a lot of water when cooking.

    1. 1
      Put the lentils in a saucepan with the turmeric and stock. Bring to the boil, cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the lentils are just tender. Remove from the heat and add salt.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a small frying pan. Add the cumin seeds and, when they begin to pop, add the ginger and cayenne pepper. Stir-fry the spices for a few seconds, then pour on to the lentils. Add the lemon juice and the coriander and stir them gently into the mixture.
    3. 3
      Lay the pieces of cod on top of the lentils, cover the pan and then cook gently over a low heat for 10-15 minutes, or until the fish is tender.
    4. 4
      Serve garnished with chopped coriander leaves and one or two lemon wedges.

      We really loved this dish. Very easy to prepare as it is a one pot meal.<br/>I omitted the cilantro. Served it with white rice. <br/>Thanks for posting.
