Cod wrapped in Pancetta

I’ve had this recipe for a while and have been meaning to try it out and what a tasty dish!

It’s from a Waitrose recipe card, simple and quick. With Mediterranean flavours it’s perfect enjoyed outside on a sunny evening with a glass of wine.


  • Fresh thyme
  • 4 skinless cod loins
  • 70g pack pancetta slices
  • Olive oil

For the veggies:

  • Olive oil
  • A few garlic cloves
  • Mixed vegetables suitable for roasting
  • Sweet potato/potato
  • 2tbsp tomato purée 
  • Lemon slices to serve
  1. Preheat oven to 200′
  2. Prepare the veg for roasting. I used sweet and normal potatoes and slightly boiled them first so that they’re soft. Onion, courgette, pepper, cherry tomatoes, and a few crushed garlic cloves. 
  3. Drizzle a baking tray with olive oil and mix the veg together. Add sprigs of rosemary or keep plain and simple.
  4. Place in the oven for about 40mins  
  5. Meanwhile sprinkle each cod loin with thyme. Wrap slices of pancetta around each cod loin so that ends are underneath. Place in a baking tray and drizzle with olive oil. Put in the oven 15mins before the veg is ready.  
  6. Add tomato purée to the veg and mix in.
  7. Serve the mixed roasted potatoes and veg with the cod loin and a slice of lemon 

Fresh, delicious and nutritious!
