• 100g bulgar wheat
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 100g chorizo, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 thick fillets skinless cod loin
  • 10 pitted black olives
  • a handful of chopped flat-leaf parsley


  • STEP 1

    Put the bulgar wheat in a bowl, pour over enough just-boiled water to cover, then season and put a plate on top. Leave to swell up while you make the sauce.

  • STEP 2

    Heat the olive oil in a large, lidded frying pan and cook the chorizo until it releases oil. Add the garlic and cook for 3 minutes then tip in the tomatoes, season and simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened. Nestle in the cod fillets and olives. Season the top of the cod and drizzle with a little more oil. Put on a lid and cook for 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked. Drain the bulgar wheat really well, stir through 1/2 the parsley and season. Spoon into bowls then top with the cod, sauce and another sprinkling of parsley.
