Roasted cod with fennel-andpotato mash
Slice 2 fennel bulbs into strips and fry in a little olive oil until soft. Boil 400g potatoes in salted water until tender, drain and add the fennel plus 40g of butter and a splash of milk. Season, blitz with a stick blender and add a handful of chopped parsley. Fry 4 cod fillets in a large pan with butter. Once cooked, pour in 300ml vegetable stock and a splash of cream. Season well and top with a few tablespoons of capers. Spread a spoonful of mash across the centre of 4 plates, top with a piece of fish, spoon the sauce around and serve. Garlicky spinach leaves would be a good side for this dish, which is simple yet smart enough for a dinner party.
