Prepares: 4 servings
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 12–17 minutes
  • Ingredients
  • 600g (1lb 6 oz) cod, skinned and cut into four
  • 40g (1½ oz) butter (3 tbsp, or ⅜ stick)
  • 1 tbsp sun-dried tomato paste
  • 8 slices mature Cheddar cheese
  • 2 plum tomatoes, sliced into 8
  • 115g (4 oz) frozen peas (1 cup)
  • salt and pepper
  • To serve
  • crusty bread and a green salad
  • Equipment
  • A heat resistant dish that is large enough to lay the 4 pieces of cod in a single layer.
  1. Method
  2. If it is possible, set the grill/broiler to medium. If you only have a high or low setting, option, turn it to low.
  3. Lay the fish in the dish. Spread the tomato paste over the fish and then dot with the butter. Place two pieces of cheese on each piece of fish and top with the sliced tomatoes.
  4. Grill/broil until the fish is cooked through. This should take about 10 minutes under a medium heat and 15 under a low heat. Increase the heat to high for a further two minutes until the tomatoes are just starting to brown.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the peas. This will take just 2 minutes in a microwave.
  6. Serve the fish with all the buttery juices and the peas spooned round the fish. Season.
  7. Serve with a green salad and some crusty bread.
