November - Local Cod Wrapped in Parma Ham


4 x 140g Local Cod portions
4 sage leaves
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 slices Parma ham
2 x tablespoons olive oil
170g potatoes, peeled
30g unsalted butter
3 spring onions, sliced
1 x tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
green beens to serve


Place a sage leaf on each portion of fish. Season and wrap each fish in a Parma ham slice. Heat half the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Pan fry the fish for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the Parma ham is golden brown.

Place the potatoes in a pan of boiling water. Par-boil for 5 minutes. Drain, return to the pan and dry for 5 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut into chunks.

Gently melt the butter and remaining oil in a pan and cook the sping onion for 2 minutes to soften. Add the potatoes and rosemary and cook until golden brown and crispy.

Serve the fish alongside the potatoes and freshly prepared green beans.
