Pan-Fried Sea Bass Fillets with Wasabi and Kewpie Salad,  sweet potato flatbread

Pan-Fried Sea Bass Fillets – Serves 2:

  • 2 sea bass fillets
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper

Method:

  1. Lightly coat the base of a non-stick frying pan with olive oil then place the pan over a medium-high heat.
  2. Once the pan is hot, season the fillets with salt and place in the pan skin-side down. Using a fish slice, press down on the fillets to prevent curling and to ensure even cooking of the skin.
  3. Cook for 3–4 minutes until the skin is nicely golden and crisp then carefully turn the fillets over to cook for 1 minute. The fish is cooked when the flesh becomes opaque.
  4. If the fish is not cooked after 1 minute, remove the pan from the heat and leave the fillets to finish cooking in the residual heat before serving.

Tips:

  1. To ensure crispy skin, dry the fillets with kitchen roll before seasoning them with salt.
  2. Don’t put too much oil into the frying pan and make sure it has a chance to get hot before adding the fillets.

Lemon Posset

This is an Italian classic, and is great for a dinner party – as it can be made in the morning.

You could crush up biscuits of your choice and put in the bottom of the glass.  A classic Italian version would be an amaretti and serve a glass of amaretto on the side!

Ingredients – Serves 2:

  • ·      300ml of double cream
  • ·      60g caster sugar
  • ·      1 juicy lemon
 
 
 
 
 
 

Method:

  1. Squeeze the lemon
  2. Bring the cream and sugar to the boil (careful it should just boil but not boil over). Once you see it boil – stay there and boil for exactly 3 minutes.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and whisk in the lemon juice
  4. Strain this into a jug and leave to cool for 20minutes.
  5. If you wish to put a crumbled biscuit in the bottom of the receptacle – this is the time to do it. If not gently pour the cream into the glasses.
  6. Refrigerate for 6 hours minimum.
  7. Serve with fruit and edible flowers.
