Ingredients (for 4 people) :

    -4 pieces of Norwegian cod loin about 180g each
    -2 red onions, finely sliced
    -2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    -1tbsp tomato puree
    -Sprig of thyme
    -1 tbsp sugar
    -Pinch of saffron
    -Pinch of cumin
    -Juice of 1 lemon
    -1 red pepper, finely shredded
    -1 yellow pepper, finely shredded
    -A few roughly torn basil leaves
    -Olive oil
    -A splash of red wine or balsamic vinegar


Preheat the over to 240C/ 464 F/ Gas Mark 9

Start by heating some olive oil in a pan and add the garlic, onions and thyme and cook gently for 10-15 minutes without colouring.

Add the tomato paste and the sugar and gently cook, add the peppers and gently cook for a further 30-35 minutes until softened and the whole mixture is really stewed down.

Add the saffron and cumin and continue to reduce. Then add a good splash of red wine vinegar to balance the sweetness.

Next pre-heat a frying pan and add 2 tbsps of vegetable oil. When the oil is piping hot, season the fish and then place into the pan until golden on one side or roughly 4-5 minutes. Turn the fish over onto the other side and place the whole pan into the oven and cook for a further 4-5 minutes.

Warm the pepperonata and stir in a few basil leaves, add a squeeze of lemon, season and serve alongside the fish.
