Ingredients

  • 4 x 225g whole Dover sole, cleaned
  • 1 tbsp groundnut oil
  • ½ tsp mixed peppercorns, crushed

For the lime, coconut and avocado relish

  • 50g fresh coconut (ready-cubed from Waitrose or prepare a whole coconut), flesh coarsely grated
  • ½ mild red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small avocado, stoned and chopped
  • 5cm piece fresh ginger, shredded
  • 1 lime, skin and pith removed, flesh segmented and roughly chopped, plus lime wedges to serve

  2. Combine all the relish ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Serve the fish with the relish, lime wedges and steamed rice, if you like.

  1. I love this recipe because it’s a really fresh way to serve grilled fish which I could never master before trying this recipe. I think I always used to over cook the fish but by sticking to the timings here it’s been right every time.
