This versatile recipe works well with any fish whiting, haddock, cod, john dory, plaice etc.

Serves 4
4 medium white fish fillets (whiting, haddock, cod, john dory, plaice etc)
200g frozen peas
Handful fresh mint leaves – roughly chopped
1 teaspoon butter
2 tablespoons flour
Salt and pepper

To Cook
To make the pea puree, cook the peas according to the instructions on the pack.

Place in a blender with the mint, butter and a little salt and pepper. Blend quickly until desired consistency. If the mixture is too thick add a little milk or cream. Set aside and keep warm.

(If you do not have a blender you can mash the peas with a potato masher or fork and add in the chopped mint, for a more firmly textured mix)

Dust the fish fillets with a little seasoned flour, and shake off any excess. Heat the oil in a pan and add fish. Turn once during cooking. Cook in the pan or in the oven until golden brown.

Remove fish from the pan and place on top of the peas.

Serve with baby potatoes and fresh vegetables.
