Print Recipe
2x 6/7oz Thick Cut Cod Lion (neck end is best for this recipe)
4x Slices Serrano Ham
300g Fabe Asturian white beans
100g Mixed Cherry Tomatoes (cut in half)
40g Piquillo Peppers
100g Mixed Olives
20g Caperberries
2x Cloves Garlic, smashed and chopped
1x Small onion (finely chopped)
50ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Edible Flowers or Garlic flowers
Garlic Oil
100g Wild Garlic
200ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1. Drain the beans in a colander, place into a liquidiser with 50ml olive oil and blitz until smooth.
2. Dry the Cod lions on kitchen paper. Lay 2 slices of Serrano ham side-by-side overlapping so they are the same width as the Cod loins. Place the Cod on the ham and roll so that the cod is completely wrapped. Warm the bean purée in a small saucepan
3. Heat a little oil in a non stick frying pan. When the oil is hot, place the wrapped Cod loins in the pan and cook for 3/4 minutes each side until the ham starts to crisp. When the loins are cooked place on kitchen paper to drain, wipe the pan out and place back on the heat, add the onion and garlic sauté gently for a couple of minutes without colour.
4. Add the Cherry tomatoes, piquillo peppers and olives, toss a couple of times and add the caperberries - drain onto kitchen paper.
5. Dress the bean purée in the centre of your serving plates and place the Cod in the centre of the purée.
6. Arrange the garnish around the edge of the bean purée and drizzle with garlic oil and for a little extra colour add a few petals of edible flowers.

Other Notes: With so much depth this dish would be complemented by either a glass of Red or White wine - so we will meet in the middle and suggest a bottle of Berceo Rioja Rosado. Enjoy!
