Cod Provencal

I've been going to France with my family since I was little, and I still go a lot now. One of my favourite things about it is obviously the food (and the wine!) We do a lot of cooking whilst we are out there, and cassoulets are one of my favourites.
This is a gorgeous dish cooked by mon Pere.


Fry some chopped onions and plenty of garlic. When soft add a tin of tomatoes, a generous amount of herbe de Provence and Sel de Camargue (rock salt will also do), a squeeze of tomato puree and half a cup of water.. Allow to simmer briefly then stir in a tin of butter beans and flageolet beans.

Then add the cod (though haddock works just as well) - this can either be individual portions of the fish or diced fish, whichever you prefer.

Leave on a low heat for 20-30 mins, until the fish is cooked through.

Serve with french beans and crusty bread.

Merci Papa, tres bien! x

  1. This looks really nice.. and simple.
    Always the best sort of food in my humble opinion. :)
    I always buy a new bag of Herbes de Provence when I happen to be down there. I like the little hessian sacks...
