Baked Fish on Potatoes

Method

Heat stock and add saffron.

Preheat the oven to 200C.

Place the onion, potato and garlic into a baking dish and add the stock and ¾ of the butter. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Remove potatoes from the oven and dollop the crushed tomatoes over the cooked potato, lightly seasoning with salt and pepper.

Drizzle oil over fish and season with salt and pepper. Arrange fish on top and add remaining butter. Bake again for 5-10 minutes, or until fish is just cooked (this will depend on how thick your fillets are).

Dress herbs with a squeeze of lemon and a splash of oil. Scatter over just before serving.
