Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). In a large pan over medium-high heat; combine peas, shallots, and stock and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes until peas are tender and stock reduced by half.

Tear bread slices into pieces and put into the food processor, pulse until coarse crumbs form and then add in lemon zest and lemon juice, and parsley and pulse until well mixed and sticking together, about 1 minute. Using a KichenAid® Food Processor, you can make bread crumbs and much more.
Divide crumb mixture into four and press firmly on top of cod. Tuck cod in amongst the peas in the pan and bake for about 25 minutes until topping is golden and fish flakes easily. Spoon cod onto plates with peas, shallots and stock. Sprinkle with green onions.
For the rice: Soak rice in cold water for 20 minutes. Drain, rinse a few times with cold water and drain again. Cook following rice instructions on the stovetop or using a rice cooker along with remaining ingredients. Give it a good stir and turn on the cooker. When rice is done, fluff up with a fork and serve.
Serve cod, peas and rice on a plate and enjoy!
