Diet.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Thick cod fillets 24 Ounce (Four 175 Gram Or 6 Ounce Pieces)
  Thin pancetta slices 4
  Capers in vinegar 3 Tablespoon
  Vegetable oil/Sunflower oil 1 Tablespoon
  Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
  Olive oil 1 Tablespoon
  Freshly ground black pepper To Taste
  Freshly chopped parsley 1 Tablespoon (To Garnish)
Directions

1. Wipe the cod fillets and wrap each one with the pancetta. Secure each fillet with a cocktail stick and reserve.
2. Drain the capers and soak in cold water for 10 minutes to remove any excess salt, then drain and reserve.
3. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sear the wrapped pieces of cod fillet for about 3 minutes on each side, turning carefully with a fish slice so as not to break up the fish.
4. Lower the heat then continue to cook for 2-3 minutes or until the fish is cooked thoroughly.
5. Meanwhile, place the reserved capers, lemon juice and olive oil into a small saucepan. Grind over the black pepper.
6. Place the saucepan over a low heat and bring to a gentle simmer, stirring continuously for 2-3 minutes.
7. Once the fish is cooked, garnish with the parsley and serve with the warm caper dressing, freshly cooked vegetables and new potatoes.
