Welcome to Filthy Feed!
My name is Evelin, the co-founder of Filthy Fit. It has been quite a few years now since I started cooking. In the beginning I was happy just to get a simple pasta or rice right and didn’t actually think through if the food we are eating is good for us or nutritious enough to maintain our general well-being. But I realised it is super important to get the right ingredients and still eat well to stay healthy, energetic, and fit.
However, it is not easy at all to watch all these things; organising a meal plan, doing the shopping and cooking fresh food daily could be a full-time job. I know, it almost sounds impossible to keep up…
The purpose of this blog is to help you feed yourself with well-varied nutritious food that you can’t get bored with. Recipes will be shared by me on a regular basis that I collected or created during the last few years using the gathered knowledge about cooking healthy food.
Some of these recipes will have our Filthy Fit nut and seed butters involved in the ingredients list that you can find on our website or click here to take a look now.
Don’t worry if you are new to cooking, or you are living a busy life, most of these dishes are not complicated and won’t take up too much of your time. I don’t like standing in the kitchen for hours either… :)
Here is the first recipe for you, I hope you will enjoy and happy cooking!
I remember the times when I thought fish was boring and I could only enjoy it once in a blue moon. However, fish are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and should be on our menu at least once or twice a week. So I braced myself up and started experimenting with different types of fish, spices, and sides and now I can see (and taste) how wonderful this ingredient can be. Another benefit of fish is that it takes only a few minutes to cook.
This cod recipe I am sharing today is not like a simple fish & chips, it is bursting in flavour because of the interesting mixture of spices, easy to make and takes only about 20 minutes.
Feel free to change the bulgur and the asparagus to different sides, I am only suggesting what I think goes well with this dish.
Serves 2 people.
2 cod fillets
2 cloves of garlic
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp melted butter
4 tbsp flour – I am using quinoa flour for this recipe, but it is totally up to you what do you like to use
Sea salt & black pepper
0.5 tsp coriander
0.5 tsp sweet paprika
0.5 tsp cumin
1 bunch (250g) asparagus
80 g bulgur
Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees C. Start boiling a pot of water for the bulgur.
Mix the lemon juice, olive oil and butter in a bowl.
Mix the flour and the spices in another bowl.
Wet the fish fillets with the lemon juice mix and dip them into the spice mix until covered.
Sear the fish in a pan with olive oil for 1 minute on each side.
Cut off the woody tips of the asparagus, then place them on a baking tray and put the cod next to the asparagus.
Add the garlic to the rest of the lemon-butter mix, pour on the top of the fish and the asparagus, and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. The fish is ready when it's flaky, almost falling apart.
When the bulgur is cooked (about 15 minutes), drain into a colander and plate.
