A delicious, fresh dish, this is for those people that don’t like a strong fish taste. Easily served with broccolini but just as great with beans or asparagus. Serve on a bed of creamy cauliflower mash to soak up the sauce.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 3.5 oz butter
  • 1 tsp garlic paste


  • Preheat oven to 220C/428F. Line a baking dish with baking paper.
  • Finely grate the rind of one lemon and cut half of it into small segments.
  • Pat dry fish then season with salt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and half the grated lemon rind. Place in the oven and bake for 12 - 14 minutes until just falling apart and cooked through.
  • Steam the broccolini in the microwave until just tender (around 4 mins). Drain and set aside to dry.
