Festive Fish


For the roasted veg

  • 400g chestnut mushrooms, quartered and halved
  • 60g butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced or grated
  • 8 small shallots, peeled
  • 500g butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1.5cm thick slices

For the fish

  • 100g bacon lardons
  • 4 fat filets of cod, 200g each, skin on
  • 1 small bunch of flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan. 
  2. Mix the softened butter with the grated garlic in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, along with the mushrooms, shallots and butternut squash. Season with salt and pepper and toss until well coated.
  3. Transfer everything to a lined baking tray and roast for 25-30 minutes, turning the vegetables once. The veg is ready when the butternut squash has softened and the edges are beginning to blacken.
  4. Meanwhile heat ½ tbsp oil in a large frying pan until hot. Add the lardons to the pan and cook until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a plate. Add the cod, skin side down to the pan. Cook for 2-3 mins. Flip and cook flesh side down for a further 2 mins.
  5. Remove the tray of veg from the oven, stir through the lardons and chopped parsley, top with the cooked cod, squeeze lemon over the top and serve.
