700g haddock, skinned and boned
375g pasta – linguini or spaghetti are ideal
250g broccoli, broken up into small florets
A little salt and black pepper
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
Juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
1 handful parsley, chopped
2 handfuls watercress or spinach leaves, roughly torn
Cook the pasta in a large saucepan of boiling water as per packet instructions. For the last minute add the broccoli. Drain and return to the saucepan, along with a couple of tablespoons of the cooking liquid. Keep warm while you cook the fish and make the sauce.
Heat the grill. Lightly oil a baking tray and place the fish on it. Season with salt and pepper. Cook under the hot grill for 5-6 minutes until the fish flakes easily.
Put the cream and stock in a saucepan along with the garlic, chillies, lemon juice and rind and season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 4-5 minutes. Then stir this mixture and the watercress and parsley through the pasta. Finally flake the fish and gently stir it in.
