Cod with Crispy Chorizo and a Tomato Sauce

Serves 2


For the tomato sauce,

  1. Tin of chopped tomatoes
  2. 1 onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 veg stock cube
  4. 1 teaspoon of sugar
  5. 1 desert spoonful of balsamic vinegar
  6. Freshly ground pepper


Soften the onions in a little olive oil until translucent (about 10min in pan, or 5 in microwave).  Add tinned tomatoes, vinegar, stock cube, sugar and pepper.  Simmer for about ten min then blend and set aside.

Other ingredients:

  1. 2 cod fillets or other chunky white fish
  2. About two inches of chorizo, chopped into little bits
  3. 4 Spring onions, sliced
  4. Mashed potato (potatoes, creme fraiche, butter, salt and pepper) to serve with.


Pan fry the fish about a minute each side (you will need to vary this depending on the size and thickness of your fish).  Place in the oven on top of a mound of mash on a very low heat.  Meanwhile fry the chorizo and spring onion quickly on a high heat until crispy.  Drain. 

Spoon tomato sauce around fish and mash.  Sprinkle with crispy chorizo and spring onion.  Serve.
