Serves 2-3

Ready in: 40 min
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min

Italian-baked fish
800g baby potatoes, cut into quarters or halves until roughly the same size
1 red onion, diced 2cm
1 capsicum, core and seeds removed and roughly chopped
1 courgette, sliced into 1cm-thick rounds
2 tablespoons fennel spice blend
600g skinless, boneless, white fish fillets
100g tomato pesto (store-bought)

Spinach and feta salad 
120-150g baby spinach leaves
100g feta cheese, crumbled
¼ cup sliced almonds

Fennel spice blend 
1 tablespoon fennel seeds
1 tablespoon paprika
½ tablespoon tomato powder

To make:

PREHEAT oven to 220C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

Toss potatoes, red onion, capsicum and courgette on prepared tray with fennel spice blend and a drizzle of oil. Season with salt and pepper and bake for 25-30 minutes, until tender. Turn once during cooking.

Pat fish dry with paper towels and remove any remaining scales or bones. Cut any larger fillets in half. Place fish fillets onto a plate or clean board in a single.

Evenly spread tomato pesto over fish and season with salt and pepper.

When vegetables have 6 minutes’ cook time remaining, remove tray from oven and lay fish over vegetables. Return tray to oven and cook for a further 6-7 minutes, until potatoes are tender and fish is just cooked through.

While fish is cooking, roughly chop spinach and toss with feta, almonds and a drizzle of olive oil in a large bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

TO SERVE, spoon Italian-baked fish and vegetables onto plates and serve spinach and feta salad on the side.
