Recipe: Portuguese Cod Bake
Cooking for one if you’ve never done it before comes with its challenges. Coming up with ideas for new dishes isn’t always easy, a lot of recipes call for fancy, expensive ingredients and more often than not, they’re designed for a family of four. That’s why we’re running a series here on the Trent Freshers’ Blog of recipes that are student-budget friendly and easy to make.
First up is one from the Executive Team Cook Book, a Portuguese Cod Bake.
- 1 cod fillet
- 1 pepper
- 1 onion
- Handful of tomatoes
- Handful of olives
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- ½ can of butter beans
- 500g passata
Heat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Put the peppers, onions, tomatoes and olives into a large, deep baking tray and cook for 15 minutes until they start to soften and char at the edges
Stir in the passata, butter beans, salt and pepper and make a little well to nestle the cod into.
Return to the oven and cook for a further 15 minutes until the cod is cooked through.
Garnish with basil and serve with crusty bread to finish.
