Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 20 minutes
90g Smoked bacon lardons
2 Sweet Gem Lettuce, sliced in half lengthways and the base trimmed
6 Spring onions
2 handfuls frozen peas
200g vegetable or chicken stock
2 x 150g cod fillets, skinless and boneless
2 tbsp crÃƒÂ¨me fraiche (low fat if you prefer)
1 sprig mint
What to do:
Heat a large frying pan, with a lid, and cook the lardons until brown and crisp. Transfer to a plate and set aside leaving approx. 1tbsp fat in the pan. Lay the lettuce in the pan cut side down and sizzle for 2 minutes. Use a tongs to carefully turn the lettuce over, tuck the spring onions around and tip in the peas. Carefully pour the stock into the pan, lay the cod pieces on top and season. Put the lid on the pan and leave to gently steam and simmer for 8-10 minutes until the cod is cooked through and the veg are soft.
Lift the veg and cod out onto two warmed wide bowls and keep warm. Stir in the crÃƒÂ¨me fraiche into the remaining cooking liquor. Check the seasoning and pour the sauce over the cod and veg top with crisp lardons and torn mint leaves.
