Roasted red pepper pesto topped cod

Roasted red pepper pesto topped cod

This tender cod with a crunchy exterior is so full of flavour, you won't need much to accompany it, so keep it light with just a leafy green salad

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

What you need:

  • 4 thick cod portions
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tbsp of Sacla' Roasted Red Pepper Pesto
  • 75g of fresh white breadcrumbs
  • Finely grated lime zest
  • 3 tbsp of mixed chopped herbs (such as dill, chives and parsley)
  • Salad leaves to serve

What you do:

  1. First preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Then place the cod on a greased baking sheet and season. Spread each piece with Sacla' Roasted Red Pepper Pesto.
  3. Now mix the breadcrumbs, lime zest, herbs and the remaining pesto in a bowl. Spoon the breadcrumb mix over the cod and press down lightly to make a delicious crust on top.
  4. Finally bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked and serve.
