After the holidays, we tend to want much lighter dishes but while we are still in the deep mid-winter, we still need hot and comforting meals. Cod is a firm, tender and layered fish that accompanies this apple-celeriac purée perfectly. The bitterness of the celeriac and the sweetness of the Pink Lady®® apple together create the perfect balance and a creamy combination. The vinaigrette, made with finely diced Pink Lady® apples, provides a fresh end note and crunch to dish. Both as cooked and raw, Pink Lady® apple reveals its variety of flavours.

For a little extra crunch, you can add a few finely chopped, toasted hazelnuts and a little mild chilli or Espelette chilli pepper on top of the fish!
