Season with sea salt, pepper and add the fresh fennel green and chopped olives.

Wash and cut the red pepper in small pieces. Heat up a pan with olive oil and add the red pepper with garlic and chili. Roast for about 5 minutes before adding the chicken stock. Cover with aluminum foil and put in oven by 180 degrees for about 30 minutes. After remove the aluminum and blend the red pepper in a food processor until smooth.

Marinate cod fish with lemon zest, sea salt and olive oil.

Heat up a grill or frying pan, and grill the cod. Place the fish after in the oven by 180 degrees for about 8 minutes until cooked through.
