This is a great one pan dish, a British classic which you don’t see that often any more. First I make a light bechamel sauce using butter, flour and milk. I cook the sauce slowly and work it thoroughly with a whisk to ensure that there are absolutely no lumps. I flavour this with a Knorr Fish Stock Pot and enrich it with a little cream. Add the cod to the bechamel sauce and poach it, so all the goodness stays in the dish. Mix in the parsley at the end of the cooking time so that it keeps green and fresh.


  • 25 grams butter
  • 25 grams flour
  • 500 milliliters semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 Knorr Fish Stock Pot
  • 50 milliliters single cream (or double, optional)
  • 8 chunks cod fillet (approx. 60g each, skinned)
  • 5 tablespoons chopped parsley (fresh, finely)
