Recipe by Gretchen Lowe, My Weekend Table


Blue Cod
1 tbsp jerk seasoning
2 garlic cloves
1 Finely grated thumb-sized piece of ginger
1 finely grated lime, zested
3 tbsp light olive oil (or neutral oil)
2 Chatham Island Food Co Blue Cod fillets, thawed and patted dry

Smoked Paprika Cream
150g sour cream
1 tbsp smoked paprika

Pāua (optional)
200g pottle of Chatham Island Pure Pāua Mince, thawed
Juice of half a lime

To serve
Warmed corn tortillas (8-10)
1 cup salad greens
½ red onion
½ punnet cherry tomatoes chopped
1 cup fresh pineapple, chopped
finely 2 avocados, sliced



1) Mix the jerk seasoning, garlic, ginger, lime zest and oil in a bowl. Smear over the Chatham Blue and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
2) For the smoked paprika cream, stir together sour cream and smoked paprika and set aside.
3) Heat a large frypan with a good drizzle of oil on medium-high heat. Season the Chatham Blue with salt and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until just cooked through.
4) Flash fry the Pāua mince in a pan by heating butter until bubbling. Add Pāua and cook for 1 minute, breaking up with a spoon as you go. Season with salt and pepper and a squeeze of lime.
5) Remove from the pan and set aside. Serve the Chatham Blue (flaked with a fork) on warm corn tortillas with salad greens, sliced red onion, cherry tomatoes, pineapple and avocado. Top with smoked paprika cream, Pāua and a squeeze of lime.
