Mediterranean smoked cod

To serve one

a piece of smoked cod for one - I asked the fishmonger to cut a piece off a larger amount and he was quite happy to do so.
A mixture of suitable veg - I used red pepper, mushroom and tomatoes chopped into smallish bits
half tsp olive oil
some chives, snipped small
some black pepper.  No salt as the cod is salty.
squeeze lemon juice

Preheat oven to around 200

Take a piece of foil large enough to wrap the fish and more.

Put the veg into a bowl, pour over the oil and mix well.  Stir in the chives and some black pepper.  Spoon onto the foil.
Put the fish on top.

Wrap the veg and fish with the foil, making sure the edges are all sealed.
Place the parcel on an oven tray and bake for half an hour.

Unwrap carefully.  Remove the fish, wrap in clean foil and keep warm.
Place the veg back in oven open and bake for another five minutes or so on high to reduce the liquid and just very slightly char the veg.

Serve with green veg and a squeeze of lemon juice.

It was very nice indeed.
