Mediterranean baked cod by Nikki Legon

I love this as a fish course with crusty bread, but it can equally be served as a main course with a baked potato and broccoli...

2 thick pieces of cod - make sure there are no bones

5 good quality black olives

2 tbsp olive oil

juice of 1/4 lemon

¾ tsp paprika

pinch of cayenne pepper

Season the cod pieces and place into a casserole dish.

Mix the paprika and cayenne pepper into the tomatoes.

Add the capers, olives and lemon juice and mix in the olive oil.
