Serves 2

Ingredients

For the fish:

2 x 150g – 200g white fish fillets (crumbed for a more indulgent version, uncrumbed for a healthier version)

1 T olive oil

For the mushy peas:

½ T olive oil

½ T crushed garlic

2 cups frozen peas

2 T fresh mint, chopped

¼ cup plain yogurt

Salt and pepper to taste

For the Kale chips:

A bunch of fresh kale

Olive oil

Salt

Method

For the fish:

For a super healthy version: Season and steam fish for 15 minutes.

For a more indulgent version: Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Brown the crumbed fish fillets in a little olive oil and bake for 10 – 15 minutes until cooked through.

For the mushy peas:

Fry the garlic in a little olive oil for a minute or two, add the peas and stir through.

Add a splash of water and cook until the peas are tender.

Remove from heat and mash roughly. Just before serving, add the mint & yogurt and heat through.

Season well with salt and pepper.

For the kale chips:

Wash and dry the kale.

Cut out the hard middle vein and cut the leaves into chip-sized pieces.

Drizzle with a little olive oil and toss through to coat lightly.

Spread the chips evenly on a baking tray (or two) lined with baking paper.

Bake in a pre-heated oven at 180°C for 3 – 5 minutes until the leaves just become crispy.

Remove and season with running salt. Serve hot from the oven with steamed or baked fish and mushy peas.
