  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 heaped tsp light, soft brown sugar
  • few sprigs thyme, leaves stripped
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

  • 1 small sliced chorizo sausage (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic (leave out if using chorizo)
  • 1 tsp fish sauce (for depth)
  • black, stoned olives (optional)


  • STEP 1
    Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the chorizo (or garlic) and onion, then fry for 5-8 mins until lightly browned. Stir in the tomatoes, sugar, thyme and soy, then bring to the boil.
  • STEP 2
    Simmer 5 mins, then add the fish sauce. Stir and then slip the cod into the sauce. Cover and gently cook for 8-10 mins until the cod flakes easily. Serve with boiled or mashed potato for a hearty winter warmer.
