Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 50 minutes
Serves: 2


  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil, plus a few drops for the foil
  • 2 tomatoes on the vine, halved
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp ground almonds
  • 1 tbsp gram (chickpea) flour
  • 3 pinches of gluten-free baking powder
  • 2 skinless cod loins (280g)
For the chips
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 large floury potatoes (400g), cut into chips
For the mushy peas
  • 200g frozen peas
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped mint


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 200C/ 180C fan/ gas 6. Next, line a baking sheet with foil and rub with a few drops of rapeseed oil. 

Step 2: Toss the prepared potatoes with the oil then place onto the baking sheet ensuring they are spread out so that they are a single layer and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. After 2o minutes has passed, add the tomatoes to the baking sheet. 

Step 3: Next, boil the peas and spring onions in a pan for approximately 5 minutes. Drain the peas, but remember to reserve some of the cooking water. Pour the peas and spring onions into a bowl with the mint and 2 tbsp of the reserved water, then using the Morphy Richards Hand Blender, blitz until smooth. 

Step 4: For the fish, whisk the beaten egg, ground almonds and gram flour together with a little seasoning. Heat the tbsp of oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium to high heat. Next, stir the baking powder into the batter mixture and quickly coat the cod loins on both sides. Fry in the pan for 3 minutes on each side, then using a fish slice turn and fry each side for another 3 minutes until golden brown. 

Step 5: Serve with the mushy peas, chips and tomatoes!
