Roasted Chorizo Cod with Crispy Potatoes

My favourite way to cook fish is by wrapping it in parchment paper with some veg and letting it work its magic! For this, I used frozen cod pieces which I love. They’re great to have in the freezer for a last minute dinner and also to save a few pennies! A great dinner to have on the table in less than 40mins & super tasty!

Serves 2


2 cod fillets (if using frozen you may want to use 3 as they tend to be smaller & shrink more!

100g chorizo (peeled and sliced)

300gish white potatoes (peeled and cubed)

2 cloves of garlic

1 tsp paprika

1/4 tsp chilli flakes (more if you like it spicy!)

Handful of fresh parsley

Squeeze of lemon

Drizzle of good quality olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 190C
  2. Parboil the potatoes in salted water for 8-10 minutes, meanwhile fry the chorizo in a large pan with a little oil.
  3. When the chorizo starts to crisp up, add in your garlic. Cook for a few minutes before draining and adding in the potatoes. At this stage, you want to crisp up the potatoes slightly and coat them in oil released from the chorizo!
  4. Place a large sheet of parchment paper in a baking tray and add in the potato & chorizo mix, then placing the cod pieces on top and topping with fresh parsley, paprika, chilli flakes and a drizzle of oil. Fold the parchment paper over the top to make a parcel and place in the oven (15 mins for fresh fish, 20-25 for frozen), until the fish is cooked through and flakey!
  5. Serve with a squeeze of lemon, salad and vine roasted tomatoes!
