My own take on a traditional Spanish recipe which uses things I usually have in the cupboard.


  • 2 Cod Fillets
  • Jar of tomato pasta sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • Couple handfuls of green beans
  • Flour on a plate for coating the fish
  • oil (preferably olive but can be any)
  • Basil, bay leaf, parsley - whatever's in the cupboard


  • STEP 1
    Cut up the cod into chunks and pat dry with kitchen paper. Coat with the flour.
  • STEP 2
    Heat oil in a pan and brown the fish, set aside.
  • STEP 3
    Use the same pan to saute onion, garlic and vegetables until the onion is translucent. Add tomato sauce and herbs. Simmer for 5 mins.
  • STEP 4
    Put fish back into the pan and reduce the heat. Simmer for another 5 mins then serve with mash potato, roast potatoes or rice.
