Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 250ml medium-dry cider
  • A few fresh thyme sprigs
  • 2 x 400g tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 75ml double cream
  • Handful of fresh flatleaf parsley, chopped, plus extra to garnish
  • 4 x 150g sustainably sourced white fish fillets (such as pollock, cod or coley), skinned

Method

  1. Heat half the olive oil in a frying pan, then gently fry the onion for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the cider and thyme and bubble over a medium heat for 6-8 minutes until reduced by half. Add the chickpeas and cream, then simmer for 2 minutes more. Season to taste, then remove from the heat and stir through the chopped parsley.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan (see tip). Season the fish, then fry over a medium heat for 4-5 minutes without turning until cooked through.
  3. To serve, spoon the creamy chickpeas into bowls, top with the fish and garnish with extra parsley.
