For me, salsa verde is a the epitome of summer Mediterranean dining and its punchiness can pep up most fish dishes. I served the cod with the salsa verde with a chicory, roast squash and pomegranate salad with kefir dressing.

Food focus – Basil is full of antioxidant flavonoids which protect against oxidative and antibacterial oils. I got my Shetland Cod from FishBox. Use the discount code for 50% off the price of your first subscription box, when you enter the code ‘UrbanKitchen1’.

Tips – The length of cooking time for white fish will depend on its thickness. Perfectly cooked fish will flake and break up when a fork is taken to it. It should not be dry so make sure to watch carefully when cooking!
