Cod Fish with Quinoa

Cod Fish with Quinoa

Fish is one of the best source of protein in low carb diet. It cooks fast and has no fat. My family don’t like steamed or just baked fish. Our traditional way is pan fried and crispy but as I don’t want to use too much oil in my cooking I grill them to crispy texture. In this recipe I use fish as tahdig ( Crispy part of rice ) but not with rice, with quinoa. You try it you will love it.
