I like to serve this with Rice with peas and Spinach cooked with onions.


  • 4 cod steaks, weighing about 1 kg/2 lb 4 oz


  1. Pat the fish steaks dry with kitchen paper. Rub them, on both sides, with ¼ teaspoon of the salt, ¼ teaspoon of the cayenne and the ¼ teaspoon turmeric. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat 4 tablespoons of the oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. When hot, put in the fennel and mustard seeds. As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop (this just takes a few seconds)
