INGREDIENTS

3 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
pinch dried chilli flakes
400g can chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp small caper or 1 tbsp large capers, chopped
6 pitted green olives, roughly sliced
250g celeriac, peeled and cut into thin batons
200g kale, roughly chopped
knob of butter
squeeze lemon juice
2 sea bass fillets, skin lightly scored
small handful parsley, chopped

METHOD

1. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a frying pan. Tip in the onion, garlic and chilli flakes and cook over a low heat for 10 mins until soft. Add the tomatoes and ¼ can of water and cook for 8 mins until thick, then stir through the capers and olives. Can be done earlier in the day and chilled.
2. Meanwhile, heat oven to 220C/200C fan/ gas 7. Put the celeriac on a non-stick baking sheet. Add another 1 tbsp oil, season and mix with your hands. Spread into a thin layer and roast for 25 mins, stirring once, until golden and tender.
3. Put the kale in a steamer and cook for about 5 mins until tender. When done, pop a knob of butter on top, squeeze over a little lemon juice and season.
4. Heat the remaining oil in a non-stick frying pan. Season the fish fillets, then put in the pan, skin-side down. Cook for 3-4 mins until the skin is golden and the fish is almost cooked through. Turn and cook for 1-2 mins more, depending on the thickness of the fillets.
5. Meanwhile, heat the sauce through, season and add the parsley. Spoon the sauce onto 2 plates, top with the fish and serve with the celeriac chips and kale.
