Ingredients

  • 500g new potatoes, halved if large
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 120g chorizo, chopped
  • 75g dried breadcrumbs
  • Grated zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 25g manchego cheese, grated
  • 300-400g baby sweet (piccarella) peppers – see tip
  • 4 x 175g sustainable sourced cod loins
  • 100g pitted green olives, halved or sliced
  • Chopped fresh flat leaf parsley to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas 7. In a roasting tin, toss the new potatoes in the olive oil, season with salt and pepper, then transfer to the oven to roast for 25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a non-stick 
frying pan, add the chorizo and 
cook for 4-5 minutes until it has released most of its oil. Add the breadcrumbs, then cook for another 3-4 minutes until crisp. Transfer to a food processor with the preserved lemon and manchego, then whizz to fine crumbs.
  3. Add the peppers to the potatoes in the roasting tin, toss to coat in the oil, then roast for 15 minutes more.
  4. Toss the cod loins in the lemon juice, then spoon over the chorizo crumb, pressing down to make a crust on top of each piece. Put the fish on top of the veg in the roasting tin, then return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes or until the fish is cooked through. Scatter over the olives and parsley and serve.

  1. If you can’t get hold of piccarella peppers, use the same weight of regular mixed peppers, roughly chopped.
