  • 5 tbsp olive oil or as needed
  • 4 large cod loin fillets
  • 400g (14oz) fresh cherry tomatoes halved (I used red, green and yellow)
  • 1 400g (14oz) can chickpeas
  • 85g (3oz) chorizo slices
  • 4 garlic cloves peeled
  • 2 red onions sliced
  • 2 roasted red peppers sliced into thin strips from a jar - see note below
  • 3 tbsp roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • splash white wine or Marsala
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to season


  • Preheat the oven to 200C (400F). Drizzle a little olive oil over a large roasting tray.
  • Put the garlic and chorizo in a mini chopper and blitz until finely ground - or dice very finely by hand.
  • Spread the chickpeas, onions and peppers over the tray. Nestle the tomatoes, cut side up, among them. Sprinkle with half the of chopped chorizo/garlic, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 10 minutes.
  • Add a generous splash of wine to the tray and place the cod fillets over the vegetables. Rub with the remaining chorizo/garlic over the fish and drizzle with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with the paprika and season. Roast for 20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
  • Squeeze a little lemon juice over the fish, sprinkle with the parsley and serve.


If you can't find ready-roasted red peppers, cook Romano (sweet long) peppers under a hot grill (broiler), turning them until charred all over. Place in a bowl, cover with a plate and leave for 5 minutes. Peel the skin off, remove the seeds and slice thinly to use.
