Baked Cod on a Bed of Sweet Potato Mash

I'm not the greatest fan of the 'fruits of the sea', but I try to sneak a little bit into my diet here and there. This is probably one of my simplest dinner recipes to make that is up on the blog, and incredibly easy to present. Which means that if you're not the greatest cook, or want to show your parents/other half that cooking healthy dinners can be easy and delicious, then this is a pretty good meal to hit them with. I paired it with a side of kale (every food blogger's go-to), but you could very easily add a side salad, other dark greens, or a medley of roasted vegetables. 

Ingredients (makes 1 serving):

1 cod fillet
1 small sweet potato (or half a large one) 
1 teaspoon coconut oil/extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons tomato puree 
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1.) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (electric oven). 

2.) Peel and chop the sweet potato. Place in a pan of water and cook for 20 minutes after the water has started to boil.

3.) Season the cod with the olive oil, sea salt, ground black pepper and parsley. Place in the oven and cook for 20 minutes.

4.) Once the sweet potato is soft, mash it with a little bit of coconut oil - this keeps the recipe dairy free and adds a little extra flavour to it. Add some black pepper. If you want, you can add a little cheese to make the mash really gooey!

5.) Place the cod on the potato. Mix the tomato puree with the lemon juice and drizzle over the top, or around the cod. Et voila, it's ready to eat!
