Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C (fan)/ 350°F/ Gas 4

Boil a kettle

Trim the woody ends off the asparagus spears and add them to a baking tray 

Drizzle the trimmed asparagus with olive oil and season with a pinch of salt, then put the tray in the oven for 15-20 min or until the asparagus is tender 


2 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Meanwhile, peel and chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt over a high heat and cook for 10-15 min or until they're fork-tender

Once cooked, drain and return them to the pot

3 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Meanwhile, halve the lemon[s]

Zest and juice half the lemon[s] into a small bowl

Add the mayonnaise and a generous pinch of both salt and pepper to the bowl and give everything a good mix up – this is your lemonaise

Cut the remaining lemon[s] into wedges

4 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Add 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] flour to a plate

Crack the egg[s] into a shallow bowl and beat them lightly with a fork

Combine the panko breadcrumbs and 3 seed mix in a large bowl with a generous pinch of salt 

5 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Coat the basa fillets in the flour, tap off the excess, then dip them into the beaten egg and finally press them into the seed and breadcrumb mix firmly to coat everything evenly – these are your seeded fish fillets

Tip: bread each fish fillet separately for ease!

6 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] vegetable oil over a medium-high heat 

Once hot, add the seeded fish fillets and cook for 2-3 min on each side, or until golden and cooked through 

Tip: add some extra oil if your pan is looking dry

7 Seeded Fish, Lemonaise & Asparagus

Return the drained potatoes to a low heat and add a splash of milk and a large knob of butter

Season with a generous pinch of both salt and pepper and mash until smooth
