Sea Bass with Chorizo Sweet Potato Mash and Greens

Sea bass is one of my favourite white fishes and now it’s on Ocado for £1.90 a fillet which I think is pretty good so I plan to cook with it more. This recipe is really healthy and balanced with a bit of a treat in the chorizo.

Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 2 sea bass fillets
  • 1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 100g chorizo cubes
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1 lemon, quartered (save 1/4, slice in half to garnish)
  • frozen peas, as many as you’d like
  • green beans, as many as you’d like
  • 2 handfuls spinach

Method

  1. To make the mash, boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes depending on how large the cubes are
  2. Meanwhile fry the chorizo cubes and garlic for a few minutes just to heat through, then set aside in a bowl. Keep the pan for the fish
  3. When the potatoes are soft, mix in a splash of milk (start small as you can always add more), and a large knob of butter (you can never have too much!). Season and mash together. Mix in the chorizo, saving a few cubes to garnis
  4. Using the chorizo pan heat to a medium heat adding a little extra oil if needed. Place the fish skin side down, season and squeeze 3/4 of the lemon on top. Fry for 8 minutes or until just cooked through
  5. Meanwhile also microwave the veg in a large glass dish. Put the beans on for 5 minutes, adding the peas after 2
  6. To serve add a handful of spinach to each plate, spoon the sweet potato on top. Lay the veg next to the potato and place the sea bass on top. Scatter the remaining chorizo cubes on and garnish with the lemon
