Cod and parma ham go so well together. Plate it up alongside a few asparagus tips and a watercres salad and you’ve got a healthy albeit tasty meal.
This one also goes into the quick and easy category – it took about 20 minutes from start to finish. You can bake the cod if you like but it takes longer and I prefer to pan fry in olive oil.
