A lovely simple dish that can act as a lightish meal on it's own, or for a bigger meal, serve with seasonal veg. You can replace the cod with any other firm fleshed white fish

Directions
1. Preheat the over to gas mark 7 or 220°C. Place the lentils and bay leaf in a saucepan with the stock or water and bring to the boil. Partially covered with a lid, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the lentils are just tender. Drain away any excess liquid and discard the bay leaf. Season the lentils with a little salt and pepper. 2. While the lentils are cooking, spread the onion on a lightly greased baking tray, and roast for 10 minutes. Sit the cod on top and roast for a further 10 minutes, until the cod starts to flake easily. 3. Mix the lentils with the watercress and the red onion, divide between 4 warmed plates, and top with the cod. 4. Combine all the dressing ingredients and drizzle over the cod to serve.
