This tasty baked cod recipe features a thyme, chorizo, shallot, and great northern bean mixture, upon which the baked cod is served. Accompanied with juicy lobster and fresh watercress, this is a nice-looking dish with plenty of different flavors and textures. The bean mixture is especially good and you can swap the Spanish chorizo for Turkish kielbasa if you prefer it or if that is easier to get. The thyme adds a fragrant flavor without overpowering the dish like anything spicy might. Add a pint of halved grape tomatoes if you like, for extra flavor, when you add the wine to the beans.
The cod is baked on top of the bean mixture and then served on top as well, with the lobster arranged around it. You can buy pre-cooked lobster or cook your own. One cup of lobster meat equals about one small cooked lobster.
You could even leave the lobster out altogether if you want to simplify the recipe, or replace it with some juicy cooked shrimp. If you want to use shrimp, choose big ones and peel them, leaving the tails on. Then you can just boil them for a few minutes instead of adding them to the baking dish with the cod and bean mixture.
