Tomato & thyme cod

Fish can be very easy to prepare a good dinner. Ready in 20 minutes and low fat, this fish dish is great for a Monday night when you’d rather be on the sofa than in the kitchen. It is healthy and tastes very well. So no excuse. Go and buy some good Icelandic cod for a perfect dinner.

Ingredients:

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, chopped

400g can chopped tomatoes

1 heaped tsp light soft brown sugar

few sprigs thyme, leaves stripped

1 tbsp soy sauce

4 cod fillets, or another white flaky fish, such as pollock

Method:

Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a frying pan, add 1 chopped onion, then fry for 5-8 mins until lightly browned.

Stir in a 400g can chopped tomatoes, 1 heaped tsp light soft brown sugar, the leaves from a few sprigs of thyme and 1 tbsp soy sauce, then bring to the boil.

Simmer 5 mins, then slip 4 cod fillets into the sauce.

Cover and gently cook for 8-10 mins until the cod flakes easily. Serve with baked or steamed potatoes.
