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.

Yes, I agree with all the above. I have cooked this a lot and was delighted to find something I could cook for my mother who can't eat bread, rice, potatoes, noodles, pasta etc etc It looks so pretty on the plate I was happy to feed it to friends as well as quick enough for a mid-week supper. YUM

This is a superb recipe - the basil bean mash is heavenly...it hardly made it to the plate as I keep 'testing' it ! Have recommended this to 3 of my foodie friends and they are equally impressed

This was so, so yummy and so, so easy to make. I can't wait to make it again! I substituted the cod for pollock which I prefered because its a firmer fish that went really well with the mash. The mash was absolutely divine! The soy beans are really sweet and the lemon gave it a lovely tang - and again, this was dead easy to make. I had the whole thing on the table in 20 mins. I found that the cooking times for the tomatoes were a bit long. Next time, I will just put them in at the same time as the fish.
