Ingredients

  • 4 x 150g pieces sustainably-caught, skinless white fish, such as pollack, haddock or large whiting
  • 2 tbsp curry paste, mixed with 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 175g polenta
  • 2 spring onions, very finely chopped
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • Vegetable oil, for shallow frying
  • 4 soft bread rolls or sliced crusty white bread, to serve
  • Mayonnaise, salad leaves, cress, cucumber slices, lime pickle, and lime wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Dry the fish on kitchen paper, then smear all over with the curry paste. Mix the polenta with the spring onions, lemon juice and zest on a plate. Press the fish into the polenta to cover.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the fish for 3-4 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper.
  3. Spread the rolls or bread with a little mayonnaise. Top with the salad leaves, cress, fish, cucumber and pickle. Serve with lime wedges.
