DSC_0008

I went for a run the other day and ended up doing 13 km in about 1 hour, which for me is quite remarkable.

To say that when I got home, after my intense workout, I was hungry would be a serious understatement…I was starving! I wanted something fresh, not heavy, yet nutritious so I decided to make myself this rice salad with the cod fish I got a few weeks before from www.andespremiumcatch.com

This dish is perfect for the summer, you can also make it ahead of time and store it in your fridge until ready to serve.

Here is the recipe!

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 100 g Atlantic Cod Fish
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 package zafferano
  • 1- 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup defrost peas
  • Fresh mint and parsley
  • 1/2 lemon, zest and juice
  • 1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Defrost green peas then boil them until cook. Drain and set aside
