Cod with Chorizo and Potato
13th November, 2018

Cod has a meaty texture and combining it with some spicy Chorizo makes for an amazing dish. Leaning on a Spanish recipe, I’ve adapted this slightly to include cinnamon which raises the flavour of the red pepper and kale

If you don’t want to use Kale then you can substitute it for other greens like Spinach or Chard but I do prefer the taste and texture of the Kale.


  • 400g potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 4 cod fillets, skinless
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 25g butter
  • 100g chorizo, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cinammon
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 150g kale, roughly chopped
  • Handful of Parsley, roughly chopped


    Preheat the oven to 180 C

    In a pan of salted boiling water, add the cubed potatoes and cook for about 5 minutes until they are just about tender. Drain and keep covered to steam

    Season the cod fillets with salt and pepper

    Using a large frying pan, add the oil and butter. When the butter has melted and begun to sizzle add the cod fillets and cook for about 5 minutes on one side

    Transfer the cod fillets to a baking tray and place in the oven to finish cooking

    Add the chorizo and red pepper to the frying pan used to fry the cod and begin to brown off for 5 minutes. Add the drained and cooked potatoes to the pan and sprinkle over the paprika and give a good stir to mix the spice in

    You'll need to cook this for about 5 minutes so stir it occasionally to stop the ingredients sticking and allow the the edges of the potato to crisp up

    Now add the chopped kale to the frying pan, cover and turn the heat down

    About now the cod should be done so remove it from the oven and keep warm and covered

    When the kale has wilted, divide the chorizo and potatoes between your plates, top with the cod, decorate with parsley and enjoy
