One of our prize winning recipes from Toothfish Month, Zoe has served her dish with salad and rice, but says that it works just as well with other side dishes.

Potato wedges or chips, savoury rice or a selection of your favourite green veg would compliment the full flavoured fillet and make for a healthy meal.
