ingredients

serves 4
1 1/2 - 2 1b (700 - 900 g) cod fillet
1 bay leaf
2 tablespoons virgin olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1-2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons ground coriander
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 lime wedges and fresh parsley sprigs for garnish

method

1. To make the marinade, tear the bay leaf into 3 pieces. Place the bay leaf, oil, lemon juice, peeled garlic, coriander and seasoning in a shallow dish and whisk together with a fork.

2. Cut the fish into 4 pieces and immerse, skin sides up, in the marinade. Leave to marinate for at least 1 1/2 hours, turning and basting two or three times.

3. Preheat the grill. Place the pieces of fish in an ovenproof dish, skin side down, and spoon over the remaining marinade. Cook for 10 minutes under a moderately hot grill, basting occasionally with the marinade, until the fish is golden-brown.

4. Lift the pieces of fish from the dish and arrange on serving plates. Spoon over the remaining marinade and garnish each piece of fish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley. Serve immediately.
