Mermaid pasta

Mermaid pasta

I think this is just the sort of dish a mermaid would like to eat, the peppers look like rubies for extra glamour!  This meal is great for the summer as it does not require hours over a hot stove and it is very fresh and light.

Preparation and cooking time: 20 minutes


300g pasta shells

4 cod fillets (loins, approx. 0.4Kg).  You could use defrosted, frozen cod for this.

½ red pepper

1tbsp olive oil

100g spinach, washed and drained

1 tbsp green pesto

200ml crème fraiche


  1. Put the pasta shells on to boil, once cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. Cut the cod into chunks.  Deseed the pepper and cut into approx. 5mm squares.
  3. Fry the cod and pepper in a pan with a little oil.
  4. Chop the spinach (I think the easiest way to do this is using scissors when its still in the bag).
  5. Once the fish is just cooked through, add the spinach, pesto and crème fraiche and heat through.
  6. Combine the drained pasta with the sauce and serve.
