Feta Smash

800g baby potatoes, halved and quartered until roughly the same size 
100g feta cheese 


Almond and Olive Fish 

600g fish fillets 
¾ bag Huntley & Palmers olive flatbreads 
25g sliced almonds 
½ cup plain flour season with ½ teaspoon salt
1 egg, whisked with 2 tablespoons milk


Tomato Salad

100g green beans, ends trimmed
3 tomatoes 
½ telegraph cucumber
½ red onion (optional)
1 tablespoon olive oil 
2 teaspoons vinegar (e.g. red wine, white wine, balsamic) 
3 tablespoons basil leaves, roughly chopped 



Step 1.
Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Bring a full kettle to the boil. Preheat BBQ hot plate to medium (if using).  

Step 2.
Cook potatoes in pot of boiling water for 12-15 minutes, until tender. Drain well and return to pot. Cover and set aside to keep warm. While potatoes cook, pat fish dry with paper towels and remove any remaining scales and bones. Cut any larger pieces in half. 

Step 3.
On a clean, dry board, use the base of a heavy pan or rolling pin to crush flatbreads and almonds. Place in a medium bowl. In separate bowls place seasoned flour and egg mixture. Coat each piece of fish first in flour, then egg, then flatbread mixture, shaking off excess as you go. Set aside. 

Step 4.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium heat. Cook fish, in batches, for 1-2 minutes each side, until crunchy and cooked through. Set fish aside on paper towels between batches. 

Step 5.
While fish is cooking, trim ends from beans and cut into thirds. Place in a small, heat-proof bowl and cover with boiling water. Cover with a plate and leave for 2-3 minutes, until beans are bright green and tender. Drain, rinse under cold water and drain again. 

Step 6.
Dice tomatoes and cucumber 2cm and thinly slice red onion (if using). Toss all tomato salad ingredients together in a large bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. When fish has finished cooking, crumble feta over potatoes and smash with a fork or potato masher. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 

Step 7.
To serve, divide feta smash between plates and top with almond and olive fish. Serve tomato salad on the side. 



While cooking fish, make sure to wipe pan out and drizzle with new oil between batches. 
Alternatively heat a drizzle of oil on BBQ hot plate and cook fish for 1-2 minutes each side, until just cooked though.
