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.
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.
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.
