Cod steak with olive oil mashed potatoes and black olive  tapenade

Ingredients for 2 people

2 cod steaks
200g stoned black olives
1 small tin anchovy fillets
2 tbs capers
4 potatoes
half a small glass of extra-virgn olive oil
6 whole chives
plus some chopped chives
1 red onion, sliced

Method

Tapenade. Put the olives, anchovies and capers in a blender and blend until smooth. This recipe makes more than is required, so you can serve the surplus on toast with apéritifs

Mashed potatoes. Peel the potatoes and boil or steam them as you normally do when making mash, but add the olive oil instead of butter or milk, and whip the mash well, then add chopped chives to taste
Cod. Gently fry the sliced onion in a little olive oil - Place the slices in a layer at the bottom of an oven-proof dish and lay the cod steaks on top - Add salt, pepper and olive oil to taste and bake in a moderate oven until the cod is cooked.
Serving suggestion. Spoon a circular pile of mash onto each plate and cover with a thin layer of tapenade, then swirl a knife through it to mix it into the mash - Spoon over a line of the cooked onion and then
