  2. Meanwhile, season the fish with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Lightly spray a large non-stick frying pan with oil and heat over medium-high heat. Cook the fish, turning once, for 8-10 minutes or until cooked to your liking. Top the fish with parsley and serve with the fennel mixture.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Steamed baby potatoes and broccolini.TIP: To make cleaning easy and to prevent fish sticking to the pan, cut out a circle of baking paper and use it to line the base of your frying pan. Lightly spray the paper with oil and fry away. VARIATION: Swap fish for skinless salmon fillets.
