New potatoes, raw

1000 g

Cherry Tomatoes

250 g, halved

Olives, in Brine

75 g, pitted black olives

Capers, in Brine

1 tablespoon(s)

Rosemary, Fresh

2 sprig(s), leaves picked


1 zest(s) of 1, plus wedges to serve

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoon(s)

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Cod, raw

4 fillet(s), medium

Salad leaves

4 portion(s)


  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Add the potatoes, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes or until tender. Drain and allow to cool completely. Halve or quarter lengthways and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, capers, rosemary and lemon juice. Season well and set aside.
  3. Cut 4 x 30cm squares of kitchen foil and mist lightly with the cooking spray. Divide the potatoes between each and top with a cod fillet, then the tomato mixture. Mist with more cooking spray.
  4. Fold the foil into parcels, rolling the edges tightly to seal. Put them on the barbecue, or a griddle pan set over a medium-high heat, and cook for 8-10 minutes or until the fish is cooked through.
  5. Open the parcels, season, sprinkle with lemon zest, then serve in their foil parcels with the salad leaves on the side.
