Add a bit of oomph to pan-fried fish with a generous helping of boldly flavoured salsa verde. You can also serve this salsa verde with griddled chicken, pork or vegetables.

Ingredients

New potatoes, raw

750 g

Olive Oil

2½ tablespoons, extra virgin, 2 tbsp for salsa, ½ tbsp for fish

Mint, Fresh

1 tablespoons, chopped

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Sea Bass, Raw

360 g, 4 x 90g

Salad (zero SmartPoints values)

80 g

Cherry Tomatoes

150 g

Balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoons

Lemon(s)

1 medium, wedges to serve

Anchovies in oil, drained

3 individual, roughly chopped

Capers, in Brine

1 tablespoons, drained and rinsed

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons

Garlic

½ clove(s), small, crushed

Parsley, fresh

3 tablespoons

Basil, fresh

2 tablespoons, chopped

Instructions

  1. Cook the potatoes in a large pan of boiling water for 12-15 minutes until tender, then drain and roughly crush with a potato masher. Toss with the oil and mint.
  2. Meanwhile, make the salsa verde. Put all the ingredients except the oil into a mini food processor, and blitz to a coarse purée. Stir in the oil, season to taste, then set aside. If you don’t have a mini food processor, you can chop everything finely by hand.
  3. Make 3 shallow slashes through the skin of each fish fillet. Mist a large nonstick frying pan with cooking spray and cook the fish, skin-side down, over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Gently turn and cook for another 1-2 minutes, until just cooked through.
  4. In a bowl, combine the salad leaves and tomatoes, then drizzle over the balsamic vinegar. Divide the salad, crushed potatoes and sea bass between plates. Spoon over the salsa verde and serve with the lemon wedges.

Notes

Remove the anchovies from the salsa if you don’t like them. The SmartPoints will remain the same.
