White fish with green veg

White fish with green veg
Serves 1-2

This dish totally proves that white fish and green veg can be (and taste) very exciting!


  • Your choice of  fillet of any white fish (I go for the one on offer)
  • ½ head of broccoli
  • ½ medium courgette
  • 100g fine beans
  • 100g mange tout
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1½ tablespoon of butter
  • Zest of a quarter of a lemon
  • Salt & Pepper



  1. Start by chopping up the broccoli, the courgette and the spring onion, and whilst you’re doing that, put the kettle on so you can steam the veg in a bit.
  2. Add the butter to a large frying pan, turn on a medium/high heat then add the fish fillet to the pan.
  3. Salt & pepper the fish and add the courgettes to the pan.
  4. Put the broccoli and beans in a bambo steamer and start steaming.
  5. After about 5 minutes, turn the fish, salt & pepper the other side, add a bit of lemon zest and the majority of the spring onion.
  6. Take the steamer with the veg off the hob after about 4 minutes (lets keep those veg crunchy!), and take the fish with the spring onions out of the pan and gently wrap it in some aluminium foil.
  7. Take the steamed veg and add them to the pan that had the fish and still has the courgettes.
  8. Stir it so they get coated in all the juices and fats in the pan.
  9. Serve it all up with a slice of lemon and some chopped up chives on the side (and if you’re feeling greedy, add some extra butter)

This is for one person so just double most of the veg if you’re cooking for more people and maybe add some extra steaming time if there’s loads more veg to cook.

You could serve this with some boiled new potatoes on the side, but I personally love it without.
