Oven Baked Fresh Cod with Potatoes and Charlottes

Ingredients: (for 4 people)
  • 2 fresh cod fillets (about 700grs) skinless and boneless (cut into small pieces)
  • 4 Large pealed potatoes cut into very thin slices (about 5mm thick)
  • 8 Charlotte's (thinly sliced)
  • 8 Spring onions (sliced)
  • 2 Broccoli heads (cut into pieces)
  • 4 Garlic cloves (finely diced)
  • 250mls fresh cream (you can use creme fraiche)
  • 1 fish stock cube (knorr or any other brand)
  • 1 bunch of parsley (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 Glass of white wine (sweet)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • A little olive oil, salt, black pepper and butter.

An uncomplicated recipe, simply cook the potatoes in water until they become translucent, but not completely cooked (cooking for around 7-10 minutes depending on the potatoes quality), at the same time place on a frying pan a little olive oil and as soon as is very hot add the Charlotte's and the garlic with a pinch of both salt and pepper, stir regularly until these become golden, which then you should add the wine and the spring onions, leaving these to cook until soft (about 3-4 minutes.

In a Pyrex tray, cover the bottom with a film of olive oil, then lay out the sliced potatoes until the bottom is covered, on top of these place half of the onions mixture and also crumble half of the stock cube over it, repeat the process potatoes and onion mixture and stock cube, on on top of this final layer place the filleted fish pieces on top, and cover the fish with sliced red (or white onions) and finally to top it all add the fresh cream over it all, cover the tray with foil and place in a 180 degrees Celsius preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Once the 20 minutes are over, remove the aluminium foil from the tray, with care not to burn yourself or for food to be stuck to it, and let it remain in the oven at the same temperature for a further 20 minutes.

During the last 20 minutes place a deep pan on the stove with two fingers deep of water in it adding to it the broccoli put the lid on and once reaches the boil reduce to minimum leaving it to cook for those 20 minutes.

During the last five minutes before the broccoli are ready, place a little bowl in bain-marie and place in it a little butter around two soup spoons, until its melted adding to it at this stage the chopped parsley    and the lemon juice.

Now that all is ready at the same time is just to assemble the dish on the plate and eat it. Bon apettit!!
