  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 10ml of vegetable oil

  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme

Line a large bowl with a piece of muslin cloth and pour all of the cooked ingredients into the bowl. Tie the muslin loosely to encase the ingredients before adding to a large pan. Add the lentils, cover with water then bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and leave to simmer for 30 minutes
  • 300g of puy lentils

Once the lentils are cooked, season with salt and pepper and leave to cool. Once cool enough to handle, squeeze the muslin bag over a bowl to catch all of the juices. Discard the muslin and vegetables and reserve the juices

Season the fillets of cod and place skin-side down onto a baking tray. Cook in the oven for 4-5 minutes until cooked through
