Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C.
  2. Coat the sweet potato chunks in spray oil, chilli powder and paprika. Spread evenly on a baking tray lined with a baking sheet and bake for 30–40 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions and peppers until soft. Add the garlic and continue to cook for a minute.
  4. Add the tomatoes and cook for another minute. If needed, add a little water, so it doesn’t dry out.
  5. Place cod on top, cover pan and cook for about 6–8 minutes or until the fish is cooked.
  6. Finally, add the halved olives and warm through. Divide the cod and sweet potato wedges between 4 plates and serve.
