Herby Baked Cod
The combination of parsley, chilli, garlic and tomato make this dish really flavoursome. It’s really easy to prepare and gives your cod fillets a well-deserved zing of flavour.
2 tbsps olive oil
1 clove of garlic
2 tbsps flat leaf parsley
2 cod fillets
1 slice of white bread
Make the breadcrumbs by toasting the bread and then blitzing in a food processor. Set the breadcrumbs aside.
Add the oil, stock, garlic, parsley, chilli and tomato to the food processor and blend until smooth.
Wash the fish and pat dry with kitchen roll. Lay the fish in a dish or baking tray.
Pour over the sauce and bake for 10 minutes in an oven pre-heated to 170 degrees (or 160 degrees, if fan assisted).
After 10 minutes, remove from oven, sprinkle over the breadcrumbs and bake for another 6 minutes.
We served our herby baked cod with mashed potatoes, green beans and broccoli, but this dish would go well with rice and a whole host of vegetables. Mange tout, baby sweetcorn, chantenay carrots to name a few.
