So much easier to make meals when everything is a 3 minute walk from the house and my favorite Cafe is on the way.
Really, I will cry when I have to go back to Stuttgart! But right now I’m laughing everyday and, I guess that’s what counts :)
Ginger Cod with Zucchini Ribbon Salad
1 fillet of cod, cut into serving size pieces

1/4 each, yellow and orange bell peppers, cut into thin strips

1 tbsp soy sauce
Juice 1/2 lemon
1 tbsp honey

Season the cod pieces with salt, pepper and the ginger powder and set aside.
Steam the zucchini and peppers for 3 minutes, rinse with cold water, drain and pat dry, then place in a mixing bowl.

Fry the cod in the olive oil until cooked and serve with the zucchini salad.
