Baked Cod with Herby Crust

Baked Cod with Herby Crust
Ingredients
  • 2 x 180g/6oz pieces of cod fillet
  • 2 tbsp fresh white breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (such as a mixture of chervil, chives, parsley, coriander) - optional
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed finely
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 140g/5oz new potatoes, any large ones cut in half
  • 160g/6oz fresh or frozen peas
Method
  1. Heat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6.
  2. Mix together the herbs (if using), garlic and oil. Stir in the breadcrumbs and season with salt and pepper. Put the fish on a baking sheet and spread the breadcrumb mixture over the fish. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes until the flesh becomes opaque and flakes easily.
  3. Boil the potatoes in a large pan of water for 12-15 minutes, until cooked through. Boil the peas in a separate pan of water for a few minutes until just cooked. Then I like to add a dollop of butter on my potatoes!
  4. Take the cod out of the oven and serve with the potatoes and peas.
