Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6

Zest 1/2 [1] lemon and add it to a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a knob of butter over a medium heat, once melted, stir in the panko breadcrumbs with a pinch of salt

Add the basa fillets to an oiled baking tray, top with the breadcrumbs and put the tray in the oven for 20-25 min (reserving the pan)

2 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

While the fish is in the oven, boil a kettle

Peel and chop the potatoes into rough, bite-size pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of plenty of boiled water with a pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, cook for 12-15 min or until fork tender, then drain and return to the pot

3 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

While the potatoes are cooking, trim the spring onions

4 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

Return the reserved pan to a medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil

Once hot, add the whole spring onions

Cook for 3-4 min or until they're soft and lightly browned

Once browned, transfer the spring onions to the same tray as the fish and save the pan for the next step

5 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

Return the pan to a medium heat with 50g [100g] butter

Pick the sage leaves from their stems, add them to the pan and cook them for 1 min or until crispy

Once the butter starts to brown, cut and juice the lemon[s] straight into the pan

Add the capers and remove the pan from the heat - this is your brown butter sauce

6 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

Meanwhile, peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

7 Lemon Crusted Basa With Brown Butter

Add the chopped garlic, a knob of butter and a splash of milk to the drained potatoes

Mash until smooth and season with a pinch of salt and pepper
