"As with meat I love fish on the bone. Why? Because the bones give a lot of flavour to the dish that wouldn't ordinarily be there if cooked filleted," says Bart van Olphen of this dish, from his new cookbook Bart's Fish Tales.
The strength of this dish is in its simplicity – pinto beans and the meaty texture and flavour of cod steaks, with pinto beans and a carefully chosen balance of herbs. It's a warming taste of the Mediterranean.
