Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Put the tomatoes onto a baking tray, rub with a little oil and some seasoning, then roast for 5 mins until the skins are starting to split. Add the fish to the tray, top with most of the lemon zest and some more seasoning, then drizzle with a little more oil. Roast for 8-10 mins until the fish flakes easily.

  2. Meanwhile, cook the beans in a pan of boiling water for 3 mins until just tender. Drain, then tip into a food processor with the rest of the oil, garlic, basil stalks, lemon juice and stock, then pulse to a thick, slightly rough purée. Season to taste.

  3. Divide the tomatoes and mash between two plates, top with the cod, then scatter with basil leaves and the remaining lemon zest to serve.

Bit disappointed with this one. The fish was lovely and the cherry tomatoes were just right - added them with the fish as suggested. the mash didn't really work for me though, didn't really like the taste or texture. Will make again but play around with the mash to see if I can get a better result

Really tasty. I also used broad beans and used the zest and juice of half a lemon, as I felt too much lemon could be overpowering. I also found that 100ml of stock was too much. But next time I will just use 50ml stock. Extremely quick to do, but impressive.

This recipe is delicious. My daughter did not fancy the sound of the basil bean mash at all, but once she tried it, she loved it. The mash combined with the lemon, fish and tomato is just great. Of course, you could use other white fish like pollack or coley fillets.

Neither my husband nor daughter were impressed with the sound of this recipe .... but I went ahead anyway, and we all absolutely loved it! We thought the soya and basil mash was really delicious. I'll definitely do it again.

I was surprised by the well integrated taste of the lemon zest. Really liked this dish. Though I had some problems finding the soya beans.

Lovely! I did a little bit of rice for the kids who were happy with this. The mash was also great. Very tasty and fresh. Will be making again.

Very easy, the fish and tomatoes were amazing. I think I need to play around with the mash a little as it was a bit of a let down.

Lovely...especially the mash! I used smoke haddock as that's all I had....a bit over-powering but still very nice!

I also used broad beans which worked well. I must have used a very fat garlic clove though, as it was a little too strong. Otherwise a lovely recipe.

Fantastic recipe, used soya beans first time but broad beans second, just as good with both. A bit too much mash but altogether great taste.
