baked cod

Cod in Foil Parcels


Serves 4


4 cod steaks
olive oil
4 spring onions (scallions) finely chopped
4 tbspns white wine or cider
4 good pinches dried dill
1 garlic clove - peeled and sliced thinly
black pepper

Heat your oven to gas mark 6, 400F or 200C.

Take four pieces of foil and brush with oil.

Lay a cod steak on each piece and divide the chopped spring onions and sliced garlic evenly between them.

Over each steak, sprinkle 1 tbspn white wine or cider, a good pinch of dried dill, a twist of black pepper and a knob of butter.

Seal the parcels tightly and put them onto a baking tray.

Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.

Allow the diners to open the parcels themselves - this way they enjoy the full blast of the lovely aroma from the wine and garlic.
