  • 4 six ounce (170g) fresh cod portions
  • ¼ cup chopped sundried tomatoes
  • ½ cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 tbsp dried summer savoury oregano, tarragon or dill make good substitutes
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 medium red potatoes washed and thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Lemon for garnish


  1. Begin by washing and slicing your potatoes and thinly slicing them. Add the slices to boiling salted water for 5 minutes to blanch them.
  2. Toss the blanched potatoes in the olive oil and savoury, and season them with salt and pepper. Divide the slices into 4 equal portions and arrange them in the centres of 4 large squares of parchment paper.
  3. Season the fish with salt and pepper and place the cod portions on top of the potatoes. Top the cod with the sundried tomatoes and olives and a small drizzle of olive oil.
  4. Bring two edges of the parchment paper together and roll the paper until one inch from the top of the fish.
  5. Fold the ends under the bottom to create a sort of sealed pouch in which the fish and potatoes can cook.
  6. Place on a baking sheet and place in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your cod portions. You may want to add another 5 minutes if they are particularly thick.
  7. Let the pouches rest for 5 minutes before serving.
  8. Serve in the paper pouches with a lemon wedge to squeeze over the top of the fish.
