Stephen Terry’s delicious dinner party dish makes use of wild garlic and jersey royals, both seasonal for spring


1. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5.

2. For the ‘stew’: tip the potatoes into a pan of boiling salted water and boil until tender. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

3. Fry the chorizo and black pudding with the olive oil in a frying pan until lightly browned and the oils are released from the chorizo. Strain and set aside, reserving the cooking oils separately.

4. Pour the chorizo and black pudding oils into a clean pan and fry the potatoes in this oil over a medium heat until lightly browned. Drain and set the potatoes aside, leaving about a tablespoon of oil in the pan.

5. Add the onion, garlic and chilli to the potato pan and fry until softened, pour in the chicken stock and cook until the volume of liquid has reduced by half.

6. Add the tomato sauce and wild garlic and simmer until the wild garlic is cooked through. Tip the chorizo, black pudding and potatoes into the pan and heat through. Keep warm.

7. For the cod: heat the olive oil in an ovenproof pan and fry the fish, skin-side down for about a minute. Turn the fish over and then transfer to the preheated oven to roast for about 5 minutes.

8. To serve, heat the butter in a pan until browned, add the breadcrumbs and fry until crisp. Divide the stew among four plates and sprinkle liberally with the brown butter breadcrumbs. Place a fillet of cod on top and garnish with pea shoots.
