Sea bass with spinach and lemon
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2


A small knob of butter
1 clove garlic
220g sea bass fillets (or try two frozen Waitrose Greek sea bass fillets)
Grated zest and juice of ½ unwaxed lemon
235g spinach
2 tbsp chopped fresh chives


1. Heat the butter in a large sauté pan and, once foaming, cook the garlic and fish fillets (skinned-side down) for two minutes.

2. Add four tablespoons of water, the lemon zest and juice, then cover and steam for 4-5 minutes until the fish is tender.

3. Transfer the fish to a warmed plate, leaving the lemon butter juices in the pan, and cover to keep warm.

4. Tip the spinach into the pan, then cook over a high heat for 2-3 minutes until wilted.

5. Divide the spinach between two warmed plates and serve with the fish, spooning over any remaining juices. Scatter.
