Seaweed butter-baked cod with pea & lettuce fricassee

Richard Bainbridge serves up a stunning baked cod recipe, topped with seaweed butter before cooking for a pleasantly salty, umami finish.


A simple lettuce and pea fricassee and new potatoes make great accompaniments, along with an unusual mint Hollandaise that he makes with rapeseed oil, instead of the customary clarified butter.

TIP: This recipe calls for kombu (kelp seaweed/dashi) powder to make the seaweed butter. You should be able to source this at the Yum Yum Oriental Market (Brighton), Unithai Oriental Market (Hove) or possibly Waitrose.
