1
To start the dish, apply a light cure to the cod loin. Combine the sugar and salt in a bowl and rub all over the fish. Seal in cling film and refrigerate for 45 minutes – 1 hour
  • 50g of sugar
  • 200g of salt
  • 1 cod loin, 300g in weight
2
Rinse well under cold running water, pat dry and seal again in cling film. Return the fish to the fridge while you prepare the remainder of the dish
3
To prepare the confit tomatoes, core, score and blanch them in boiling water. Once cool enough to handle, peel and discard the skins. Cut each tomato in half and remove the seeds with a spoon
  • 3 plum tomatoes
4
Place the half shells of tomato onto a baking tray lined with cling film. Sprinkle with a little sugar, salt, thyme, a thin slice of garlic and a generous brushing of olive oil
  • sugar
  • salt
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • olive oil
5
Place in a dehydrator for 90 minutes to concentrate the flavour, ensuring they are still plump and not overly dry. Once finished, cut into a large dice and set aside
6
Preheat the oven to 120˚C/gas mark ½
7
Prepare the garlic by making a small prick into the skin of each clove (this will stop them bursting during cooking). Place into a small ovenproof pan with the thyme and add enough olive oil to just cover. Cook in the oven for 1 hour then remove and set aside to cool
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 sprig of fresh thyme
  • olive oil
8
For the white beans, combine the beans with the carrot, onion, celery, garlic and thyme in a saucepan and cover with a generous amount of vegetable stock
  • 1 carrot, cut into 2cm dice
  • 1 onion, cut into 2cm dice
  • 1 celery stick, cut into 2cm dice
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and bruised
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • vegetable stock
  • 200g of fresh Coco de Paimpol beans, shelled
9
Bring to the boil and reduce the heat and gently simmer for 15 minutes. Add a pinch of salt and cook until just tender for a further 25-30 minutes - the final result should be a creamy bean that holds its shape
  • salt
10
Remove the beans from the heat and allow to cool before removing the other vegetables and thyme. Store in the cooking liquor in the fridge until required
11
To prepare the green beans, cook in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes, then strain and refresh in ice-cold water. Strain again, cut into 1/2cm barrels and set aside until required
  • 100g of green beans
  • salt
12
For the parsley oil, combine the parsley and a good dash of lemon oil in a blender. Starting on a low speed, slowly pour in a thin stream of olive oil until the parsley starts to blend. Increase the speed and add enough oil to form a coarse, oily purée. Do not over-blend or it will taste bitter and bruised
  • 1/2 bunch of fresh parsley
  • 1 dash of lemon oil
  • olive oil
13
Preheat the oven to 80˚C
14
For the cod, place on a roasting tray and coat lightly in either lemon oil or good quality extra virgin olive oil. Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until the flesh firms up and just begins to flake when touched
  • lemon oil, or olive oil
15
Meanwhile, reheat the white beans in a small amount of the cooking liquid. Once hot, remove from the heat and stir in a knob of butter, the confit tomatoes, chorizo, parsley and lemon juice
  • 60g of chorizo sausage, chopped
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 1 1/3 handfuls of parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon, juice only
16
To finish the green beans, in a small pan, sweat the shallot in butter for 2 minutes, then add the green beans and toss to combine. Season to taste and set aside
  • 1/2 shallot, finely diced
  • 1 knob of butter
  • salt
  • pepper
17
For the spinach, place a large pan over a medium heat and add 20g of butter. Once melted, add the spinach to the pan. Use a fork to pierce and skewer the garlic clove and use this as the utensil to stir the spinach. Cook until just wilted, season with salt and set aside
  • 500g of spinach
  • 20g of butter
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled
  • salt
18
Remove the fish from the oven and brush with the parsley oil. Scatter the white beans across the centre of each plate and top with the fish. Garnish with the green beans and confit garlic, serve immediately
