  • 1 Pre heat the oven at 180°C.
  • 2 Heat some olive oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat and add the shallot, garlic, chili flakes and anchovies. Fry for 2 minutes till softened. Add the zucchini, fry another 2 minutes, then add the white wine, stir and wait for another 2 minutes.

  • 5 Stir the sauce and spoon about three table spoons on each cod fillet. Make sure there’s a few slices of zucchini on each as well.
  • 6 Fold the tinfoil and greaseproof paper until you have a package with enough room for air, then put it in the oven for 10 minutes.
