While I love my Jamie Oliver recipes, I have never once thought any of his recipes would be clean enough to eat on an every day basis. But, finally, success! With some slight modifications, I made this delicious fish – it was so nice to have fish that wasn’t frozen and simply flavoured with salt and pepper.
Ingredients (serves 2):
2 fillets of any white fish
1/2 tsp fennel seeds, ground in a pestle and mortar
Half a head of broccoli, halved again lengthways
1 bunch asparagus, tips trimmed
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 Tb soy sauce
Put a medium saucepan of water on to boil then start by making the dressing. In a large bowl, combine the chilli, garlic, soy sauce and 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil. Squeeze in the juice of half a lime and mix thoroughly.
Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the fish fillets. Sprinkle the ground fennel seeds over the fish along with salt and pepper. Finely grate over the zest of half a lemon and then cut the lemon into quarters and set aside.
Flip when mostly cooked to make sure the fish is cooked on both sides. Meanwhile, add the broccoli and asparagus to the boiling water. Boil, covered, for about 3 minutes. Drain and toss with the pre-prepared dressing.
Serve the greens with the fish and quartered lemon.
