A Quick Fish Dish

Fish is a quick and simple option for a no fuss dinner. The obvious accompaniment is potato and for this dish I have chosen mash but with a little twist.

Basil Seasoned Hake with Baby Spear Asparagus and Spring Onion Mash:
(Serves 2)

A dish impressive in its simplicity.

    •  2 Frozen Hake Fillets
    • 2 Squares of Tin Foil
    • A Sprinkle of Dried Basil
    • A Drizzle of Willow Creek Basil Infused Olive Oil
    • A Sprinkle of Herbal Salt 
    • A Twist of Cracked Black Pepper
    • A Packet of Baby Spear Asparagus
    • 2 Large Potatoes
    • A Few Spring Onions
    • Juice of a Lemon
    • Heat oven to 200 degrees Celsius
    • Peel potatoes, cut into small pieces and put onto boil
    • When potatoes are almost done, add the chopped spring onions to the water
    • Tear 2 squares of tin foil
    • Place a piece of hake on each square, sprinkle with dried basil, herbal salt and dribble some basil infused olive oil over it
    • Fold up into a parcel and place fish in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes (don't overcook)
    • Blend potatoes and spring onions in a blender with a glug of basil infused olive oil, squeeze of lemon juice, sprinkle of herbal salt and black pepper
    • Put the asparagus spears onto boil for a few minutes
    • Once done squeeze over lemon juice, a little basil oil and herbal salt
    • Place all ingredients on a plate and serve with the juices from the fish drizzled over
