Sizzling cod

Cod may be difficult to some ones. Specially to the fishermen who have to provide the fish often under harsh conditions and to the people that are working on processing, and the people that are working on the logistics so we, the consumers get fresh quality fish for consumption. All that is done perfectly in Iceland. We just have to go to the nearest fishmonger or supermarket and get the piece of fish we want and go home to cook it. That is the easy part.

Ewen the easiest of recipes can make a real feast for dinner so why not get started with this easy one from the GoodFood magazine


250g jar mixed pepper with herbs

250g new potato, scrubbed and thickly sliced

1 red onion, cut into wedges

140g green bean, trimmed and halved

175g chunky cod or salmon fillets, skin on

half a lemon

crusty bread, to serve


Pour all the oil from the jar of peppers into a deep frying pan. Heat the oil until bubbling, then tip in the potatoes and onion and toss in the oil. Cook for 5 mins, stirring every now and then until the potatoes are beginning to turn golden.

Carefully pour most of the oil out of the frying pan, leaving behind about 1 tbsp. Tip in the beans and drained peppers, season and stir until well mixed. Lay the fish, skin side down, on top of the vegetables.

Cover the pan and cook over a medium heat for 5 mins more or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the vegetables are tender. Squeeze the lemon half over the fish and serve with crusty bread to mop up the juices.
