    1. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat; cook and stir the garlic in the oil until golden brown; add the tomatoes and mix well until juicy; stir in 1 teaspoon oregano. Lie the cod and prawns into the mixture; season with salt; cover and simmer 3 minutes. Flip the cod and season again with salt and 1 tablespoon oregano; re-cover and cook another 3 minutes. Remove the lid and allow to cook until the juice evaporates slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.

    Try this recipe with inexpensive fresh coley or pouting. They both belong to the cod family but are much cheaper and available in larger supermarkets or fishmongers.

    Wow super easy & got rave reviews from my family. My Spanish mother in law said I was her 'Masterchef' - still basking in that compliment. Thx for recipe.  -  05 Jan 2015


    Being recently singled and a (non-capable) learner pensioner and reluctant cook, I often have a problem scaling down recipes intended for larger groups for just the single serving I require. However, I think I got it right with this one. Delicious!  -  19 Nov 2016


    Really light and fresh taste, my wife is not a lover of tomatoes where as I am although she said it was really tasty and would have again my big surprise was how much better fresh tomatoes are over tinned.  -  05 Oct 2016
