Finishing touches and presentation
Smear the cod belly with the Bilbao miso and leave to macerate for 10 minutes. Then lightly roast it with a powerful blowtorch. Cover the bottom of the plate with the creamy carrot escabeche. Place the cod which you have just roasted with the blowtorch on top of the escabeche: the cod should be served lukewarm. Arrange small mounds of the rocket couscous around the cod. Dress the cod with the chilli dressing and place red chard shoots on top. Serve immediately.
