You could even use chorizo to spice up this fish stew


  • 200 g beans of your choice, soak overnight in water (you can also use tinned)
  • 1 l chicken stock
  • 1 carrot
  • a few sprigs thyme (dried will also do)
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • 1 onion
  • knob of butter
  • chopped parsley
  • 1 whole sausage (about 200g)
  • 200 g cod
  • 25 g butter
  • 0.50 lemon juice


  1. Soak the dried beans overnight, butter beans would be great in this recipe but any beans will do.
  2. Drain the beans and cover with the chicken stock. Add the carrot, onion, garlic and thyme and cook slowly at a low heat for about and hour and a half.
  3. After about 40 minutes add in the sausage whole for more flavour.
  4. Seal off the cod and baste with 25g of butter. Cook it for 5 minutes until cooked and deglaze the pan with lemon juice. You can also add this to the pot.
