Baked Cod in a Chorizo Lime Crust with Crushed New Potatoes and Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes – 10pp

I love fish and when I spotted this little recipe in the Hairy Bikers ‘Eat for Life’ Cookbook, I knew I would have to give it a whirl. The recipe didn’t really suggest any accompaniments that I fancied so I put together some of my own. These, coupled with only a few tweaks to the original recipe made for the most amazing dish. You would never think that this was a healthy ‘diet’ recipe. Amazing!

Homemade 0pp Coleslaw

One of my favourite accompaniments to any burger or BBQ recipe is a lovely creamy coleslaw. Not wanting to buy the high calorie supermarket version, I decided to create my own low calorie version which I have to say is absolutely delicious. My OH couldn’t really tell much of a difference between shop bought and this!



Serves 8 = 0pp each or serves 4 = 1pp each

Half a large cabbage, finely shredded

1 or 2 carrots, peeled and finely sliced

1 large red onion, finely sliced

1 tbsp white wine vinegar


2 tsp white wine vinegar

6 tbsp extra light mayonnaise

1 tsp Dijon mustard

½ tsp wholegrain mustard

Salt and Pepper


Pop all the vegetables in a large bowl, top with 1 tbsp white wine vinegar and combine.

In a smaller bowl mix all the dressing ingredients, loosen with a little drop of cold water (this will look odd at first but keep mixing and it combines nicely) and season well.

Tip dressing over the vegetables, combine well and taste to see if it needs more seasoning.

As a result, I’m always trying to find new ways to include it within my meals so that I can both enjoy it but keep the points low. This recipe is an ideal was to do this. By scooping out some of the avocado to make room for the egg you reduce the points by another half. I reserved the avocado I scooped out and have kept it for tomorrow’s salad!
