Baked cod loin with aubergine and tomato salsa


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C, Gas Mark 5.
  2. Heat 2 tbsp Cooking Liquid in a frying pan and cook the garlic, onion and aubergine over a medium heat until very soft, for about 4-5 minutes.
  3. Stir the sun-dried tomato paste and peppers into the frying pan and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes. Add the balsamic vinegar and season to taste.
  4. Spread 1 tsp Cooking Liquid over each piece of bread, then top with the aubergine mixture and spread it out evenly. Arrange the bread in a baking dish or on a baking sheet and top each one with a cod or haddock fillet.
  5. Brush a little extra Cooking Liquid over the fish and season with black pepper. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the fish is cooked – the flesh should flake easily when tested with a fork. Serve, garnished with basil leaves.

Cook’s tip: For a vegetarian recipe, use slices of goat’s cheese instead of the fish, and bake for 10-12 minutes.
