I love introducing the boys to simple, but delicious meals that they can add to their homemade cookbooks and cod and potato hash ticks all our boxes and it is ridiculously tasty for something that only includes three main ingredients! Plus it does you that potatoes are more than a bit on the side.
We made our cod and potato hash using the last of our homegrown new potatoes which happen to be Maris Peer, but you can use any brand of new potato for this recipe, in fact it doesn’t even matter if you overcook them slightly as you are going to crush them. I am really lucky that we have our own new potatoes throughout the summer and just as we start to run out my father in law is harvesting his potatoes (he is a dairy farmer, but grows enough potatoes for his immediate family)!
I am working with I am working with Potatoes: More than a bit on the side to raise the profile of the humble spud. Potatoes are a great food as they are naturally salt and fat free, low in sugar and also a good source of fibre and potassium. Plus they are fast to cook and really versatile and you can cook them in your crock pot!
Cod and Potato Hash
- New potatoes
- Cod Fillets (one per person)
- Bunch of Spring Onions
- 2 tablespoons of rapeseed oil
- Tatar sauce
Prepare and cook your new potatoes. As we were using the last of our new potatoes I peeled them, but normally I would be happy to just wash and use them earlier in the year.
Place in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil, cover and simmer until cooked. Drain and set aside.
Chop your spring onions into small rings (you can use all the green too)
Pan fry your cod fillets. We used frozen cod filets this time as there were no fresh. I have no issues with frozen fillets and they are often better value. If you are cooking from frozen, make sure they are cooked through. Remove from the pan before they flake and set aside.
Heat your rapeseed oil in a frying pan and add your cooked new potatoes and crush them slightly and allow them to start to crisp on the edges, before adding in your chopped spring onions for 2 minutes.
Then add you cod to the pan and cook until it starts to flake.
Then dish out in to bowls and serve with tartar sauce.
I often serve this with vegetables on the side.
