Try this tasty fishy recipe; Pan-fried Sea Bass with sautéed potatoes and rainbow chard with a prawn, grape and pine nut beurre noisette.

Ingredients

  • 4 sea bass fillets, scaled and scored
  • 300g potatoes, parboiled
  • 300g rainbow chard, blanched
  • 20 prawns
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 300g potatoes, parboiled
  • 300g rainbow chard, blanched
  • 20 prawns
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 20 green seedless grapes
  • 100g butter (for the beurre noisette)
  • 30g butter (to fry the fish)
  • Oil and butter (to cook potatoes and chard)

Method

Dry the sea bass skin with kitchen paper then season with salt.

Prepare the beurre noisette by heating 100g butter in a saucepan over a medium heat until it begins to brown.

Lightly toast the pine nuts in a dry pan until golden, then add to the butter along with the prawns and grapes. Heat through and keep warm until the fish is cooked.

Heat a glug of oil in a saucepan and place the fish skin side down, making sure you keep them flat by placing a weight on top – a plate or bowl should do the trick. Fry for 3-4 minutes, then turn the fillets over and add a knob of butter. Baste the fish with the butter and cook for a further minute.

Meanwhile sauté the potatoes in a hot pan with oil and butter until golden, and pan-fry the chard in a little butter and seasoning.

To serve, arrange the potatoes on a plate, top with the chard, then the sea bass. Spoon over the sauce.
