Ingredients

  • sea bass fillets 2
  • vegetable oil 2 tbsp
  • coriander seeds 1 tsp, toasted and crushed

PICKLED VEG

  • white wine vinegar 1 1/2 tbsp
  • caster sugar 1 tsp
  • dill finely chopped to make 1 tbsp
  • cucumber 1/2, peeled into strips
  • carrot 1/2, peeled into strips

BLITZED BEETROOT

  • ready-cooked beetroot 150g, drained and roughly chopped
  • quark 100g
  • natural yogurt 2 tbsp
  • lemon 1, juiced

Method

  • Step 1

    To make the quick pickled veg, whisk together the white wine vinegar, caster sugar, chopped dill and some seasoning. Add the cucumber and carrot, and toss well.

  • Step 2

    Put the chopped beetroot, quark, yogurt, lemon juice and some seasoning into the bowl of a food processor and whizz until smooth.

  • Step 3

    Coat the fish fillets in the vegetable oil, season well and cover just the flesh side of the fish with the coriander seeds. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add the fish skin-side down. Cook for 4-5 minutes until the skin is very crisp, then turn the fish and cook for 30 seconds.

  • Step 4

    Serve the blitzed beetroot spooned onto the plate, the fish on top, with the drained pickled veg.

Quark is an excellent low-fat alternative to soft cheese.
