1
Place the pieces of cod on a chopping board, dry them with a piece of kitchen towel. Sprinkle lightly with salt and place on tray, cover with cling film, and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
2
Boil the potato in salted water, rinse spinach in cold water.
3
Take the potatoes and drain, keep a little of the water for the mash. Place the potatoes back in the pot, mash them roughly with a whisk, add the 75g of butter (save a teaspoon for the spinach) and a bit of the potato water, season to taste with salt, pepper, and nutmeg, it should be lumpy, with the peel still on.
4
Melt the butter in a frying pan, fry the cod on both sides for a few minutes and turn the cod to make sure the butter is sizzling without burning. Now take a spoon and start spooning the melted butter over the cod while still in the pan, repeat a few times. Total cooking time for the cod should be around 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle with pepper before serving.
5
In another pan, wilt the spinach in a tsp of butter, season with salt and pepper and a dash of lemon juice. Serve the cod with potatoes and spinach.
