Roast the first 8 ingredients over very high heat in vegetable oil until charred and a very deep brown, almost black. Season with salt and pepper, lemon juice, chives, lemon zest, and capers. Cool and mix all together.


Four 6-8 oz fillets of cod, skin on and scored

Salt and pepper

3 tsp vegetable oil

1 tbs butter

Coarse salt


Heat a nonstick pan over very high heat. Season fish with salt and pepper. Add vegetable oil and let the pan start smoking gently. Add fish, skin-side down, and cook for 30 seconds.

After 30 seconds, add butter and let brown gently for 30 more seconds. Turn fish and let it continue to cook for 1 minute. Move fish from the pan, and drain on a paper towel. Re-season with coarse salt and serve over the mixed brassicas.
