Fish, in this case Cod with Chorizo, is a big part of Spanish cuisine, you only need to read up on the exploits of Spanish fishing boats to know that, but in addition to that, a huge proportion of the fish caught in the North Sea is sold to Spain – and for good reason – they make it taste brilliant.

This is a meal in one, and absent of any of those devilish starchy carbs, nothing wrong with pulses, especially when they are Butter Beans and are accompanied with Chorizo, oh yeah…

  1. Put the oven on to 240 and the pan on to medium high heat with a little oil. Add the Chorizo and gently fry until it starts to take on colour and all the orange paprika juices have run out. Remove the Chorizo ad set aside.

  5. Grab the cod, which should be dry, rub a little oil all over it and season with salt. Then make a little space and place it in to the sauce, touching the bottom of the pan, skin side up - don't let any of the sauce get on to the skin. Squeeze a quarter of a lemon's juice and place two further quarters in to the sauce, skin down - they will caramelise.

  6. Pop it in to the oven for 15 minutes, at which point the fish should be cooked through and the skin a golden brown.
  7. Removes the caramelised lemons with tongs and squeeze, throw the basil leaves over the top and serve with a cold glass of the white Rioja.
