Cod with bacon, lettuce & peas (serves 2) Cals 550pp – BBC Good Food

I am in charge of meal planning and all cooking in our house but I often ask the other half if he fancies anything. He quite often just leaves me to it but this week the boy did good with tonight’s choice!

Quick and simple dish which was ever so tasty and filling! I must point out the bread is very important to get all the yummy juice!


2 tsp olive oil
2 rashers rindless smoked streaky bacon, cut into small pieces
1 small onion, very finely sliced (90g)
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 thick skinless cod fillets (140g each)
140g frozen peas
200ml chicken stock
2 Little Gem lettuces, thickly shredded
1 tbsp half-fat crème fraîche (30g)
2 slices seeded wholegrain bread
10g light margarine/butter (I used flora light)

1. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan. Add the bacon, onion, and garlic. Cook gently, stirring, for 2 mins, then push to one side of the pan.

2. Season the cod with ground black pepper. Fry in the pan for 2-3 mins, then turn over. Add the peas and stock, and bring to a simmer. Cook over a medium heat for a further 2-3 mins, then add the lettuce and crème fraîche. Cook for a couple mins more, stirring the vegetables occasionally, until the fish is just cooked and the lettuce has wilted.

Serve with bread to mop up the broth.
