Delicious fresh flavours complement this light and tasty fish perfectly


The method

  1. Season the fish with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a frying pan and when hot add the oil and John Dory fillets. Cook for approx 2 minutes depending on their size, then turn over to cook the other side. When the fish is cooked, remove and keep warm.
  3. Add the baby gem to the pan (add a little more oil if required). Turn the baby gem to cook briefly on the other side but aim to keep it crunchy. Add the capers to the pan.
  4. To make the dressing, shake all the ingredients together.
  5. Place the cooked crunchy baby gem on the serving plates, lay the fish up against the lettuce and spoon over the dressing.

Tip: For a simpler dressing, use shop-bought vinaigrette in place of the mustard, lemon juice and olive oil, and just add the garlic and pinch of smoked paprika
