Ingredients For Cod Pitta
4 cod loins or chunky fillets from Walter Purkis & Sons
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp dried oregano
2 tsp smoked paprika
1 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved

1 small tub tzatziki

Cooking Method For Grilled Cod Flatbreads
If you are using some wooden skewers for this dish soak them in advance for about 30 minutes in cold water. This will help to stop them from burning under the grill.
Preheat your grill to a medium heat.
Cut each of the cod loins or fillets into good-sized chunks and place in a mixing bowl with 2 tbsp of the oil, the oregano and some smoked paprika. Season generously with salt and pepper then mix well to coat the fish all over.
Thread the chunks of fish onto the skewers. Now arrange the skewers on a non-stick baking sheet and place under the grill for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway and grilling until the fish looks opaque and flakes easily and is cooked through. Remember that thicker chunks will take longer than thinner strips that will need less time
While the fish is cooking prepare the salad elements. Place the halved tomatoes in a bowl with the remaining oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss together and set aside.
When the fish is cooked, switch off the grill and warm the breads on the rack for a minute or two under the residual heat.
Serve the warmed flatbreads right away with the grilled cod, tomatoes, onion, lettuce and tzatziki.
If you cannot find any skewers in your kitchen don’t worry, just arrange the seasoned cod in pieces on a non-stick baking sheet and cook exactly the same way.
