let's get started

Black pudding goes well with pretty much anything, and our Skinni black pudding is no exception. Made with lean cuts of beef and super healthy oats, it offers a double dose of all the good things about beef. Vitamin B12 to keep your energy levels up, easily absorbable iron to keep oxygen pumping around your bloodstream, and of course all that lovely lean protein to keep you in tip-top condition.

Black pudding with cod not only tastes fabulous, but chunky cod loin has some impressive health benefits of its own. Another source of lean protein, cod is rich in iodine, an essential nutrient in thyroid hormones for a healthy metabolic rate. Cod also offers good levels of choline. Not considered an essential nutrient in terms of recommended daily amounts (there are none) choline is nonetheless considered essential by the body, where it contributes to nerve signalling and brain function. The muscles that you rely on for movement, need reliable neurotransmission to function effectively so choline is pretty vital.

The final part of this great tasting trio is the mushy peas. The three ingredients go together so well. You can make your own mushy peas from dried marrowfat peas, but really why bother? Not only available in a tin, you can now get frozen mushy peas which are pretty handy.

We added some tomatoes, roasted on the vine with the fish. They bring some much-needed acidity to the dish, that lifts the flavours. Nutritionally, they round out the benefits too. Full of Vitamin C, not just a powerful antioxidant to fight cancer and heart disease, vitamin C deficiency can manifest as depression. If you do suffer from low energy or mood, it could well be a lack of vitamin C. Also with antioxidant lycopene, and potassium that is essential for blood pressure control, tomatoes offer a huge range of nutritional benefits.

Tasty and nutritious? Yes, please.


1. Heat the oven to 200C.

2. Lay the fish, black pudding, and tomato vine, on a baking tray.

3. Drizzle the oil over the fish and season with salt and pepper.

4. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the fish flakes apart when pressed, and is opaque the whole way through.

5. Serve the fish over the hot mushy peas, with the black pudding and tomato.
