Poached Cod, Homemade Chips & Peas

Serves: 2 toddlers

This is a perfect healthy kids version of fish & chip Friday, and it’s pretty easy to do from scratch so give it a go!! We used a cod fillet from a bag of frozen fillets and just removed it from the freezer a few hours before we started cooking. It works great with salmon and haddock too.. Once cooked it’s lovely and tender, easy to pick up with tiny hands and delicious!
