Method

  1. Heat the sunflower oil in a medium non-stick frying pan. Add the bacon, shallot or onion, and garlic. Cook gently, stirring, for 2 mins, then push to one side of the pan.
  2. Season the cod with ground black pepper. Fry in the pan for 2 mins, then turn over. Add the peas and stock, and bring to a simmer. Cook over a medium heat for a further 2 mins, then add the lettuce and crème fraîche. Cook for a couple mins more, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until the fish is just cooked and the lettuce has wilted. Serve with bread to mop up the broth.

Tried this dish as a different way of serving fish. Husband wasn't sure about the warm lettuce but he certainly ate his words and cleared his plate ! A great recipe to keep in the folio. Pep it up with some of your own favourite herbs or spices

Rather fed up to have spent quite a lot of money on this dish and to have come out with something quite bland (as others say, I now see) and uninteresting. Wont try it again.

I made this recipe for the first time and it was easy to make and very nice considering I don't usually eat healthy foods

Won't be making this again. It was passable but the thin insipid sauce didn't do it any favours. There are much better low fat dishes around.

Yet another recipe where 'healthy' seems to be synonymous with 'bland'. Very dull dish. The only flavour came from the bacon. Will not be cooking again.

Loved this. Lots of lettuce in the garden so I need lots of imaginative recipes.

Added a squeeze of lemon juice at the end which really brought the dish alive!

I found the sauce far too runny and one lettuce would have been sufficient. If I made again, I would try using 100ml of stock.

Really yummy dish and healthy at the same time. Was very quick to make and made an ideal mid-week dish. I left out the creme fraiche but I think perhaps you do need it to add that little bit of creamy-ness.

Easy, tasty, & healthy. Served with garlic toast. Hubby and 2 year old both loved it. Would make again.

I don't usually like meals without bread, potatoes, etc. but this was the exception. I used pangasius fillet with only one head of lettuce, 100 gr of peas and some single cream that I had in the fridge. It was delicious, healthy and very quick. Will definately make it again.

Really tasty. Used big chunky bits of cod, and some king prawns too.

Really quick and easy, great for mid week. Clean plates too from my 18 mth and 3 year old. Served with new potatoes.
