Starfish Rating:


450 g (1 lb) cod fillets
Lemon juice
1 bay leaf
Slice of onion
6 peppercorns
2 tablespoons butter
60 g (2 oz) button mushrooms, trimmed and sliced
1 small red pepper, seeded and sliced
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 tsps paprika pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
30 g (1 oz) plain flour
280 ml (1/2 pint) milk
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1 tsp tomato puree
Salt and pepper
225 g (8 oz) fresh pasta, cooked
2 tablespoons sour cream, or natural yogurt

1. Cut the fish into 1-inch chunks. Put these into an ovenproof dish with the lemon juice, bay leaf, onion, peppercorns and just enough water to cover. Cover with a lid and poach for about 10 minutes in a preheated oven, 180°CUP (350°F)/Gas Mark 4.

2. Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the mushrooms, pepper, shallot, paprika and garlic. Cook gently, until the pepper begins to soften.

3. Stir the flour into the mushrooms and peppers. Gradually add the milk, stirring until the sauce has thickened.

4. Remove the fish from the dish and strain off the liquor. Stir enough of this liquor into the pepper sauce to make it of coating consistency. Add the parsley, thyme and tomato puree to the sauce and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Season to taste.

5. Arrange the hot, cooked pasta on a serving plate and place the cod on top. Coat with the paprika sauce, and spoon over the sour cream, or yogurt, to serve.
