Cut the cod loins in half and put in a large bowl. Add the thyme, rosemary, salt and plenty of freshly ground black pepper. Toss until the cod is lightly coated. Pour over 1 tbsp of the oil and toss again.

Place a large nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the cod and fry it for about 2 ½ minutes on each side until just cooked. (Don’t overcook the fish or it will begin to flake apart.) Transfer the cod to a warm plate and cover loosely with foil.

Return the pan to the heat and add the remaining oil, the onion wedges, pepper and courgette pieces. Stir-fry for 5 minutes until the vegetables are softened and lightly browned. Return the cod fillets to the pan and heat through for a minute or so. Spoon over the pesto sauce and serve immediately.
