Cod pairs well with cherry tomatoes, so here is a super simple and well-loved recipe for cod with cherry tomatoes and pasta. Preparation Time: 5 mins. Cooking Time: 20 mins. Serves: 6


  • 6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and lightly crushed
  • 1 fresh red chilli, cut in half (optional)
  • 3 pounds Svenfish Cod fillet, roughly diced
  • 3.5 fl oz white wine
  • 4.2 oz cherry tomatoes, diced
  • bunch of fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
  • Pappardelle or pasta of choice
  • 1 pinch each of salt and black pepper, to taste
  • bunch of parsley, finely chopped, to serve


  1. Place the oil in a large frying pan over a low heat. Once hot, add the garlic and the chilli, if using, and fry for a couple of minutes until golden and fragrant. Remove the garlic and chilli from the pan and discard.
  2. Increase the heat and add the cod. Let it brown slightly for a couple of minutes, stirring often, then slowly pour in the white wine and let it evaporate.
  3. Add the tomatoes and basil, stir gently and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 8–10 minutes over a moderate heat.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a pot of generously salted water to the boil. Cook the pasta until al dente, following the packet instructions.
  5. Once the pasta is al dente, reserve a cup of the starchy pasta cooking water, then drain the pasta and add to the sauce. Stir gently over a low heat for 2 minutes, adding some of the reserved cooking water to loosen the sauce, if needed.
  6. Plate and serve immediately, topped with the parsley.
