Hello, I need help!

I will be making this on new years eve, any idea what sort of potato dish will go with this? )the fish will be stuffed with sun dried tomatoes, if that helps)

I'd probably do something like garlic roasties with a garlic mayo.
Before you said potatoes I was going to suggest ratatouille.

I'd do buttered new potatoes and garlicky green beans or asparagus.

reduction of roasted tomatoes and olives maybe an anchovie or two in there too
with roasted cubed potatoes parmenter type of thing

I can only say the best accompaniment would be more cod and Parma ham - that sounds so delicious!!!
Could you get samphire or is that totally out of season at the mo?

wow! thank you fir your replies, some great ideas here!

I certainly like the roasted tomato reduction, will definately do that and maybe the garlicky greens too, to keep the dcs happy.

Samphire - good idea but I think that is out of season.

Ratatouille - will do that another time when it's just me and DH.

I look forward to eating this now grin

New potatoes and squeaky green beans

I would do a green herb risotto and roasted baby tomatoes with it (sorry have headed off the potato track here!!)

Mmh green beans and some kind of garlic potato, what time can I come round?

I do these cubed crunchy pots with my cod/chicken wrapped in Parma ham dishes. Sometimes exclude or vary the rosemary

Saute potatoes and roast peppers

We do cod in Parma ham with flageolet beans and rocket. No potatoes at all, very filling and tasty - and quick.

Tin of flageolet beans, rinse, tip in big pan with a spoonful of olive oil and a couple of crushed garlic cloves, heat gently, bung in bag of rocket, stir through till slightly wilted/softened. 6 mins tops, no prep other than crushing the garlic.

Pea risotto. Had it with cod in a restaurant recently. Bloody lovely.

Would swedish roast potatoes go?

I think I'd do Puy lentils cooked with some shallot, white wine and herbs, then add a simple green vegetable like roasted green beans...

saffron crushed potatoes?
cook bitesized chunks of floury potato in veg stock with saffron
bash them about a bit once drained with a bit of butter but dont mash
make some gremolata? and perhaps roast plum baby toms?

I'd go for dauphinoise potatoes and green beans.

Exactly what I would do!
