Thank you Cherry for my wonderful dinner!
Cod with chorizo and green beans…
Peel and boil 4 large Maris Piper potatoes in water with a pinch of salt
Trim and rinse 140g of green beans
Chop 50g of chorizo in to thin slices and then cut those slices in half
Peel and chop 2 shallots
Add all of this to a pan with some olive oil, 6 heaped teaspoons of capers and sauté on a fairly low heat – you don’t want the shallots or chorizo to burn
Put two line caught cod fillets in to a pan and cover with milk
Add two bay leaves and ten peppercorns
Gently poach the cod – you can tell when it is done as it will flake beautifully
When the potatoes are soft mash vigorously with a knob of butter, some milk and ground black pepper
Serve the mash on to a warmed dinner plate
Remove the poached cod gently from the milk and place on top of the mash, add the green beans, chorizo, capers and shallots to the plate on top of the cod.
