Cod with Lentils

This tasty light fish dish is high in protein and packed with fibre, as well as taste. Adding Chorizo to anything is a winner in my book, and this dish is most certainly full of flavour.

At 370 calories, this will fit into anyone’s calorie budget for lunch or dinner, and if you have a little more calories to spare you can add a few small new potatoes or some rice or couscous.

Delicious light fish dish



4 x 150g skinned cod loin fillets

1 tsp dried thyme

150g cooking chorizo, diced

50ml Marsala or sherry

300g cherry tomatoes

250g cooked puy lentils


  1. Preheat the oven to 200℃/Fan 180℃/Gas 6. Season the cod fillets with salt and pepper and brush them on both sides with a little olive oil. Sprinkle over the thyme, then roast the cod in the oven for 12-15 minutes until it’s just cooked through. Remove the cod from the oven and set it aside.
  2. While the cod is roasting, put the chorizo in a frying pan and cook it over a medium heat until it has browned on all sides and has rendered out plenty of oil. Strain off most of the oil, then discard it.
  3. Turn up the heat and add the Marsala or sherry to the pan. Allow it to bubble up for a moment or so, then add the cherry tomatoes and heat until the cherry tomatoes have plumped up and almost look ready to burst. Add the lentils and stir them into the tomatoes until warm.
  4. Pile the lentils, chorizo and cherry tomatoes on warm plates and top with the roasted cod. Serve with lots of green vegetables to keep calories low, or new potatoes, rice or cous cous, if you have a few to spare.
