    Cod and Bacon Wraps

    Serve these cod wraps with mashed potato flavoured with parsley and Dijon mustard, or on a bed of rocket, drizzled with Greek yogurt.

    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 550g pack frozen Waitrose Natural Prime Cod Fillets, defrosted
    • ½ x 170g jar Waitrose Fresh Stir-In Basil Sauce or Red Pesto Sauce
    • 8 rashers Waitrose Smoked Streaky Rindless Bacon
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
    • Freshly ground black pepper


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Season the fish with freshly ground black pepper and spread with the pesto, about 1-2 teaspoons per fillet.
    2. Stretch each rasher of bacon using the back of a knife. Wrap each piece of cod in 2 rashers, avoiding any overlapping.
    3. Place the cod on a baking tray lined with aluminium foil. Brush with the olive oil and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the fish is just cooked and the bacon is crisp. If necessary, place briefly under a hot grill to crisp up the bacon.

    Cook's tips

    As with all fish, keep a close watch on the cod as it cooks: 5 minutes too long and the flesh will become dry.

    Frozen cod is sold by weight so the number of pieces in a pack sometimes varies - if you have more than 4 pieces, simply pair 2 smaller pieces to make 1 large portion.
