Carb-Wise: Taco-Spiced Cod

with Fresh Pico de Gallo & Grilled Street-Style Corn

Cooking time

15 minutes




320 /serving

Our admiration for Mexican-style street food knows no bounds. Here we’re channelling the taco stand experience, minus the tortillas. A blend of chili powder, spices and lime essence gives a leg up to firm fillets of cod, which you’ll pan-cook to golden and finish with lime zest. Cobs of corn go onto the grill to be ready for a slathering of spiced sour cream and scallion top. Finally, whip up a quick tomato-based pico de gallo for zing.

  • 2 Cod fillets
  • 1 Scallion

  • 43ml Sour cream
  • 11.5g Mexican Moments spices (salt, chili powder, garlic, sugar, paprika, coriander seeds, black pepper, cumin, onion, oregano, lime oil)

Mise en place
Heat the BBQ on high, making sure to oil the grill first. Zest and juice the lime. Small-dice the tomatoes. Toss the corn (shuck if necessary) with a drizzle of oil and ⅓ of the spices. Thinly slice the scallion, separating the white bottom and green top. In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, ½ the lime juice, ½ the lime zest and ½ the remaining spices.

Grill the corn
Grill the corn on the BBQ (or in a grill pan heated on medium-high), turning occasionally, 7 to 9 min., until the kernels are tender and beginning to brown. Transfer to a plate and brush with ½ the spiced sour cream. Sprinkle with ½ the green top of the scallion. Reserve the grill pan, if using.

Cook the cod
In a large pan (or reserved grill pan), heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the cod* dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spices. Cook, 2 to 3 min. per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Sprinkle with the remaining lime zest.
