The method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/fan 160ºC/gas mark 4.
  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a pan of salted water and boil until tender, around 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for 1 minute. Return the potatoes to the pan and mash them with the butter, a good pinch of salt and pepper, and the chopped parsley.
  3. While the sweet potatoes are cooking, lay the Parma ham slices on a work surface or chopping board. Top each with the cod. Wrap the Parma ham around the fish so it’s completely enclosed. 
  4. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and add the cod. Sear on all sides, then place in the oven for approximately 5 minutes, until it’s cooked all the way through. 
  5. Serve the cod with the sweet potato mash and green vegetables.
