Recipe Of The Week - Spanish-style Fish With Herbs & Chorizo


This dish is great for a hot day cooking over the barbeque, and it is equally as delicious cooked in the kitchen. Give it a go, we're sure you'll agree!



  • 50g blanched almonds
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for the beans)
  • 150g chorizo, thickly sliced
  • 3 tbs fresh parsley, chopped
  • Grated zest and juice 1 lemon
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 400g French beans, trimmed
  • 4 x 200g skinless cod fillets
  • Sea salt and pepper

Serves 4


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/mark 6
  2. Pop the almonds on to a baking tray and bake for 5 minutes until golden
  3. Place in a bowl and combine with the smoked paprika and some sea salt. Set aside
  4. Heat the oil in a large pan, add the chorizo and fry for 5 minutes until crisp. Keep warm
