🥕Cilantro + Cumin Carrot Salad

Slice carrots

Toss carrots with 1/4 cup olive oil, 3 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp coriander, 1 tsp paprika, a sprinkle of cayenne, 2 minced garlic cloves, a big handful of fresh cilantro, chopped.

Place cod fillet on a large rectangle of parchment paper, drizzle a little olive oil, salt, fresh parsley and chive sprigs, lemon slices.

Cover cod with the parchment paper and seal the edges shut by folding them over.

Bake at 450 for approx 10 minutes, when you see the parchment puff open, it's ready.
