Instructions

Prep the Veggies
1

Preheat your oven to 200°C. Put a large saucepan of water with 1/2 tsp salt on to boil for the potatoes. Chop the potato into 2cm chunks (no need to peel!). Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Chop into roughly 1cm wide, 5cm long batons. Halve, peel and thinly slice the shallot. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).

Cook the Veggies
2

Put the carrots on a baking tray in a single layer. Drizzle with oil and season with salt, pepper and the thyme. Toss to coat, then roast on the top shelf of your oven until tender, 20-25 mins. When boiling add the potatoes to the water and cook until you can easily slip a knife through, 15-20 mins.

Make the Pesto Crumb
3

Meanwhile, pop the breadcrumbs, pesto and oil (see ingredients for amount) into a bowl and mix together.

Bake the Fish
4

Line a baking tray with baking paper and drizzle with oil. Pat the cod dry with kitchen paper and lay on the tray. Spoon the pesto crumb evenly over the fish, pressing down with the back of your spoon as you go. Cook on the middle shelf of your oven for 12-15 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands after handling raw fish. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque all the way through.

Make the Sauce
5

Heat a drizzle of oil in a medium frying pan on medium heat. Add the shallot and stir-fry until softened, 3-4 mins. Stir in the garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute, then add the vinegar and allow it to evaporate, 1-2 mins. Pour in the water (see ingredients for amount) and vegetable stock powder, bring to the boil and simmer until reduced by half, 2-3 mins. Vigorously stir in the butter until melted, then take it all off the heat.

Serve!
6

Once the potatoes are cooked, drain in a colander and return to the pan off the heat. Add a knob of butter and a splash of milk (if you have any) and mash until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover with a lid to keep warm. Serve the cod with the potatoes and carrots alongside and a drizzle of sauce. Enjoy!
