PAN-FRIED PANGASIUS FILLETS WITH GARLIC POTATOES


INGREDIENTS: (For 2 persons)

  • 1 x 265g (9 1/2oz) pack skinless and boneless pangasius fillets

  • 350g (12 1/2oz) baby potatoes, quartered

  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 tbsp rice wine vinegar or white wine vinegar

  • 1/2 lime, zested and juiced

  • 1 red chili, seeded and finely chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 3-4 tbsp roughly chopped coriander

  • 1½ tbsp olive oil

  • 3 tbsp plain flour

  • In a medium pan of salted, boiling water, cook the potatoes for 12 mins, or until tender.

  • While the potatoes are cooking, make the salsa: In a bowl, combine the extra-virgin olive oil, vinegar, lime zest and half the lime juice, chilli, half the garlic, and the coriander. Season and add extra lime juice to taste, if you like.

  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan over high heat. Season the flour and use to coat the pangasius fillets, then add them to the pan. Fry for 30 secs over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-high and fry for a further 2 mins each side, or until golden and cooked through.

  • Drain the potatoes. Return to the pan, along with the remaining olive oil and garlic. Lightly crush with a potato masher or a fork, then divide between 2 plates. Top with the fish and drizzle over the chili and coriander salsa.
