2 white fish fillets

2 tablespoons of harissa paste

Juice of 1/2 lemon

For the salad

2 carrots, peeled and grated

2 spring onions, finely sliced

A few sprigs of fresh mint, finely chopped

1 tsp of harissa paste

2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp of balsamic vinegar

Sea Salt and ground black pepper to serve

30 mins
Serves 2

This is a snappy little fish dish with a nice hit of spice. Harissa paste is a super handy store cupboard ingredient which really adds an extra kick to dishes like this. You should be able to find it most supermarkets close to the spices.  It goes really well on fish, poultry and meat.

Spread the harissa paste on the flesh side of the fish fillets and set aside.
In a bowl whisk together the harissa paste, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and then toss in the carrot, spring onion and mint until combined.
Place a non stick frying pan over a high heat and drizzle with a little oil if needed. Place the fish fillets skin side down and fry for 2 minutes and then turn over and fry for a further two minutes or until cooked through.
When you turn the fish, squeeze the juice of 1/2 a lemon over the fish.
Serve the fish fillets alongside the carrot salad and dig in! :)

    Can you purchase the harissa paste in American markets, or do I need to look at speciality stores? This sounds so delicious and simple for a busy evening!

    Oh my god! You’ve out done yourself again. This is delicious! I love it!
    I added some oyster mushrooms fried in black truffle and hemp oil as a side too. So good.
