Baked Codfish with Mango Salsa (Noubess-Spiced!)

Baked Codfish with Noubess spices

This recipe features the beautiful, flaky texture of cod, perfectly seasoned with a blend of spices from Noubess. Noubess offers a variety of spice blends inspired by the Caribbean, allowing you to bring authentic island flavors to your home cooking. Today, we’re bringing a taste of the islands to your kitchen with a classic dish – baked codfish with a vibrant mango salsa.

For this recipe, we recommend using Noubess’ Jerk Seasoning, a blend of allspice, thyme, Scotch bonnet peppers, and other warm spices. It adds a depth of flavor that beautifully complements the sweetness of the mango salsa.

The ingredient for the Baked Codfish Recipe

Here’s a breakdown of the ingredients you’ll need for this baked codfish with mango salsa:

For the Baked Codfish:

  • Cod fillets: The star of the show! Use two cod fillets, each around 6 ounces.
  • Olive oil: A tablespoon of olive oil helps to coat the cod and keep it moist while baking.
  • Noubess Jerk Seasoning: This is the key to the Caribbean flavor. Noubess Jerk Seasoning is a blend of warm spices like allspice, thyme, and Scotch bonnet peppers (according to the recipe, but always double-check the ingredients list on the actual product). And the beauty of this seasoning blend is that it is salt-free.
  • Salt: optional

For the Mango Salsa:

  • Mango: One ripe mango, diced. This adds a touch of sweetness and tropical flair.
  • Red bell pepper: Diced red bell pepper provides a bit of crunch and freshness.
  • Red onion: A quarter of a red onion, diced, adds a sharp bite to the salsa.
  • Jalapeno pepper (optional): If you like things spicy, include a seeded and diced jalapeno pepper.
  • Lime juice: The juice of one lime brightens up the salsa and brings out the flavors.
  • Cilantro/Parsley: Fresh cilantro adds a herbaceous touch.
  • Salt and pepper: To taste, for adjusting the final flavor profile.

Tips:

  • For a spicier salsa, leave the seeds in the jalapeno pepper.
  • Don’t have fresh mango? You can substitute canned mango chunks, but be sure to drain them well before adding them to the salsa.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Classic Caribbean Sides Pairings:

  • Rice and Peas: A staple in Caribbean cuisine, rice and peas are a comforting and flavorful accompaniment. You can use coconut milk for extra island vibes.
  • Roasted Vegetables: Roasting vegetables like broccoli, carrots, or sweet potatoes brings out their natural sweetness and pairs well with the savory fish and salsa.
  • Fried Plantains: Sweet, salty, and delicious, fried plantains are a classic Caribbean side dish that adds a textural contrast to the cod.

Lighter Options:

  • Quinoa: Quinoa is a healthy and protein-packed grain that complements the cod without being too heavy. Drizzle it with a light vinaigrette for extra flavor.
  • Salad: A fresh salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a light vinaigrette is a great way to balance out the richness of the dish.
  • Cauliflower Rice: If you’re looking for a low-carb option, cauliflower rice is a delicious substitute for traditional rice. Season it with herbs and spices for added flavor.

Additional Tips:

  • Consider the Seasonings: If you’re using a Noubess Jerk Seasoning that’s particularly spicy, you might want to choose milder side dishes.
  • Think about Texture: For a well-rounded meal, include sides with different textures to complement the flaky fish.
  • Get Creative! Don’t be afraid to experiment! You can also try other Caribbean-inspired sides like fried green bananas or chayote salad.

Noubess Seasoning Swaps for Baked Cod with Mango Salsa:

This recipe is a jumping-off point for delicious flavor combinations! Here’s how you can adapt it using other Noubess seasoning blends:

  • Noubess Cajun Seasoning: This is a great swap for the Jerk Seasoning if you prefer a different kind of spice profile. Cajun seasoning typically includes paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and thyme. It will add a smoky and slightly spicy flavor to your cod.
    • Tip: Since Cajun seasoning can be spicier than Jerk seasoning, start with a slightly smaller amount (maybe 1 tablespoon) and adjust to your taste.
  • Noubess Adobo Seasoning: This blend is inspired by Filipino cuisine and features soy sauce, garlic, black pepper, and other savory spices. It will give your cod a richer, umami flavor.
    • Tip: Since regular adobo seasoning has a saltier profile, you might want to omit or reduce the added salt in the recipe. The good thing about NouBess Adobo Seasoning is that it is salt-free. Additionally, consider adding a squeeze of lime juice to the salsa for a brighter flavor.
  • Noubess Baharat Seasoning: This is a Middle Eastern spice blend that typically includes allspice, black pepper, cloves, coriander, and nutmeg. It will add a warm and complex flavor to your cod, quite different from the Caribbean inspiration.
    • Tip: Since baharat is not typically spicy, you can experiment with adding a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes to the seasoning mix for a bit of heat. To complement the warm spices, consider adding chopped dried fruit (like raisins or cranberries) to the mango salsa.

General Tips:

  • Start Low, Go Slow: When using a new seasoning blend, it’s always best to start with a smaller amount and taste as you go. You can always add more, but you can’t take it away!
  • Explore the Noubess Website: The Noubess website likely has recipe suggestions for their different seasoning blends. Check it out for inspiration on how to use them with cod or other types of fish.
  • Get Creative!: Don’t be afraid to experiment with different flavor combinations. The beauty of cooking is finding what you enjoy!
