Bacon Wrapped Cod with Baby Potatoes, Steamed Vegetables and Butter Parsley Garlic Sauce

4 November 2020


A whole mouth full for a simple dish. We always have some frozen fish in the freezer, perfect for this kind of preparation. Certain fish and seafood I would always buy fresh though, especially when it’s the hero of your meal (like salmon or whole sea bass for example).

Anyway, salty bacon is a great combination with white fish. I also wanted to make a white sauce to go with it all, but to be honest I was pretty beat after a few tiring days so this simple butter sauce was a great addition, maybe even better 😉

By Saffron Serves: 2
Prep Time: 10 minues Cooking Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 cod filets
  • 8 slices of smokey bacon
  • 500 g baby potatoes, unpeeled
  • 50 g unsalted butter
  • Olive oil + butter for frying
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • Handful fresh parsley, chopped
  • 300 g green beans
  • 200 grams carrots
  • (Or any other veggies you prefer)
  • Pepper and salt for seasoning

Instructions

1

Place the potatoes in a pan with salty cold water and bring to a boil.

2

When boiling turn down heat slightly and cook for 20 minutes.

3

In a separate pan bring ± 5 cm of water to a boil and add some salt (this is for the veggies).

4

While waiting for the water to boil lay out the bacon strips (4 strips per cod filet).

5

Place the cod on top, season with loads of crushed black pepper and wrap in the bacon. Set aside.

6

When pan of water is boiling add the carrots to the water and place a colander or vegetable steamer on top in which you place the green beans.

7

Boil and steam the veggies for ± 8 minutes (I like them slightly undercooked, cook longer if you prefer).

8

In a skillet or non stick frying pan heat a small knob of butter and 1 tbsp of olive oil.

9

When butter has dissolved and started to froth add the bacon wrapped cod pieces.

10

Fry ± 4 minutes on each side until bacon is crispy.

11

At this point both the veggies and the potatoes should be done and drained, cover to keep warm.

12

In a small sauce pan heat 50 g of butter and add the grated garlic and parsley and season with pepper and salt.

13

Just before serving toss the veggies and potatoes in their pans with a drizzle of the butter sauce.

14

Now all is needed is to plate up!

Notes

Carrots take a bit longer than green beans that's why I use 2 different techniques of preparing them. If you don't have a colander or a steamer just add the beans to the boiling after ± 4 minutes so they cook half the time of the carrots.
