Cider Braised Cod



  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 sliced leeks
  • 2 chopped garlic cloves
  • 2 cod fillets
  • 500ml sparkling dry cider
  • 400g tin of green lentils, drained
  • Chopped parsley
  • 1 lemon, zest only
  • 100ml crème fraîche
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large lidded pan and cook the leeks for 8 mins to soften. Add the garlic, cook for a minute, then place the fish on top of the leeks. Pour enough cider into the pan to cover the fish, then cover and cook for 10 mins. Remove the fish and set aside.
  • Pour the remaining cider into the pan and boil until reduced by ⅔. Heat the lentils in a separate pan with some seasoning, then stir in the parsley, lemon zest and remaining oil. Remove the cider from the heat and leave to cool for 3 mins. Stir in the crème fraîche, season to taste, then arrange the fish and leeks over the lentils and spoon over the sauce.
