Cod with Leek and Mushroom Orzo
Cod with Leek and Mushroom Orzo



  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 4 cod loin fillets
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ small bunch of thyme
  • 1 lemon, zested and thinly sliced
  • 2 sliced leeks
  • 200g sliced mushrooms
  • 300g orzo
  • 500ml veg stock
  • 2 tbsp crème fraîche
  • Preheat the oven to 200C. Add the flour to a shallow bowl and season well, then dip in the cod loins to evenly coat. Fry the dusted fish in 1 tbsp of oil for 2 mins on each side, or until golden, then transfer to a roasting tin and top with the sliced lemon and half the thyme. Bake for 10 mins.
  • Heat the rest of the oil in the pan and fry the mushrooms and leeks for 5 mins, then add the stock and orzo and cook for 10 mins, stirring until tender. Stir through the lemon zest and crème fraîche, season well, and serve on plates with the cod fillets on top with the roasted lemon slices as a garnish.
