Wrapping the cod in pancetta before cooking really brings the best out of this delicate white fish – exclusive recipe for Ocado by Arthur Potts Dawson

Share recipe


  • 1 tsp salted capers
  • 1 pack spinach, torn in to 5cm long pieces
  • 1 portion prime skinless cod fillets
  • 1 sprinkle cooking salt, for seasoning during cooking
  • 4 slices pancetta
  • 1 sprinkle black ground pepper, for seasoning during cooking
  • 2 tsp blended olive oil
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 1 drizzle extra virgin olive oil


Step 1

Wrap the cod fillet in the pancetta, make sure that it is completely covered. Rub the pancetta in oil and then pan fry until golden brown, approximately 5 minutes, then put into a hot oven for a further 5 minutes.

Step 2

Meanwhile, thoroughly wash the spinach and tear the stalks into small pieces, approximately 5 cms long. Take the washed spinach wet from the bowl it's been rinsed in and put straight into a frying pan. Heat for about 30 seconds and then add a drizzle of oil. Continue cooking until it wilts and turns dark green then add the capers and seasoning and cook until most of the moisture has disappeared.

Step 3

Place the spinach onto a plate, top with the pancetta covered cod and then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Finish with a generous slice of lemon.
