  6. green beans
  7. bunch of dill

To cook:

  1. Season the fish with salt, pepper, a squeeze of lemon and olive oil.

Joanna paired this with a parsley sauce, steamed green beans and creamed spinach (recipe in this post!) - garnish with dill for extra fragrance and flavour.

For the sauce

  1. Melt 25g butter in a pan over a med-low heat, then stir in 20g plain flour. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 mins until a paste forms.
  2. Gradually pour in the 250ml milk, stirring continuously until all the milk has been incorporated and the sauce coats the back of a spoon.
  3. Bring to a simmer and bubble for a minute or so...
  4. Remove from the heat and stir through the parsley. Add the juice of 1/2-1 lemon and 1tsp of preferred mustard to taste (optional).
  5. Season well with salt and pepper. Once cool, it will keep chilled for up to three days or frozen for a month.
