Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Boil a kettle 

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 395°F/ Gas 6

Peel and chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces 

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiling water with a pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 15-20 min or until fork-tender

Once cooked, drain and return them to the pot

2 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Cut the lemon[s] into quarters

Chop the parsley finely, including the stalks (keep this aside for garnish later)

Cut up 4 [8] A3 size sheets of baking paper

3 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Lay each cod fillet in the middle of 2 pieces (doubling it up prevents any leakages!)

Divide 50g [100g] butter between the cod fillets, dotting it evenly, then top with the capers 

Squeeze a lemon quarter over each piece of cod and season generously with salt and black pepper

 

4 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Scrunch the edges of the baking paper together around the cod fillets to form a sealed parcel

Add the parcels to a baking tray and put the tray in the oven for 10-12 min or until the cod fillets are cooked through

Tip: Your cod is cooked when it turns opaque and flakes easily

 

 

5 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Meanwhile, rip the leaves off the spring greens, discard the tough stalks, then layer the leaves over each other, roll them up & slice into thin strips

 

 

 

6 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat

Once the pan is hot, add the sliced spring greens and cook for 1 min, then add 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] boiled water, cover and cook for 2-3 min or until wilted

 

7 Cod En Papillote With Lemon-Caper Butter & Mash

Meanwhile, return the drained potatoes to a low heat and add a generous drizzle of olive oil

Mash until smooth, then season generously with salt – this is your olive oil mash
