Crispy cod

And cod is the fish at the base of one of the most famous street food in the world, the Fish and Chips.

The cod is a simple fish and extraordinary nutritional properties.

Rich in proteins and vitamins of group B, associated with an important content of minerals including phosphorus, iodine, iron and calcium, cod has a white and delicate meat, easily digestible.

It is a valuable source of proteins and polyunsaturated fatty acids, mainly of the omega 3 series, which, within an active and healthy lifestyle, can help reduce the levels of bad cholesterol in the blood (LDL).

Good and healthy, cod can be used to make many recipes: steamed, baked, grilled.

A preparation that, given the cooking method and the breading used, alters the precious nutritional properties of this fish, transforming it from a food rich in nutritional properties, to a preparation that is difficult to digest, rich in saturated fats.

So why don’t we turn it into healthy street food?

The crunchy and golden breading made with oat flakes, almonds, oilseeds and chopped parsley, obtained by wetting the frozen cod hearts in a batter of water and chickpea flour, further enriches the nutritional value.

Furthermore, the use of spices such as parsley brings very useful substances such as vitamin C, while cooking in the oven reduces the lipid profile.

The result is a fillet of cod fish that is crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, so good it is loved by young and old.
