Fish with Sweet Peppers is a superb recipe to have in your head. The flavours of the garlic, onion and peppers blend beautifully with the cod. You can use other firm fleshed fish such as haddock, pollock, halibut and bass amongst many. The colour, aroma and taste make it a popular dish at home. Also, it can be used as either a side or as a main. I usually serve this with boiled rice for a fast meal.

  • Place a large pan on a high heat.
  • Add the sliced onion, chicken broth, garlic, oregano, salt lemon juice and zest and stir well.
  • Add the chopped scallions and black bean sauce
  • Bring to the boil and then reduce to a gentle simmer whilst the onion cooks. Should be about 7-10 minutes.
  • Add the fish gently and the peppers to the pan and cover.
  • Simmer for a further 7-10 minutes until the fish flakes apart easily and the peppers are soft.
  • Remove fish and vegetables from the pan onto a warm dish and keep warm.
  • Combine corn starch and water until smooth to make a thickening agent.
  • Slowly add the starch water into the pan juices and continually stir.
  • Bring back to a boil and cook until thickened. Keep stirring. It should only take a couple of minutes.
  • Spoon over the fish and vegetables and serve piping hot.
  • I put a slice of lemon on the side of the dish for a slight kick.
