Magnesium-rich pollack, haddock or cod with a light version of colcannon - the traditional celtic potato dish.

 

Ingredient list


900g potatoes, scrubbed or peeled and chopped
2 cod steaks or fillets
1 large leek, finely sliced and rinsed
½ small green (or savoy) cabbage, finely shedded
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp olive oil
freshly ground black pepper

Preparation


Boil the potatoes until soft, and fry the leek, cabbage and garlic in a little oil until slightly browned.

Meanwhile, grill the cod on both sides until browning slightly.

When the potatoes are soft, mash with a dash of olive oil, and the fried leek, cabbage and garlic to make the colcannon.

Place a serving of colcannon in the centre of serving plates and position the grilled cod on top.

Grind black pepper over it and serve.

Notes


Any firm white fish could be used for this dish... if you have a choice, check with your fishmonger which choice is most sustainable (probably not cod).
