Instructions

Get Prepped
1
  • Trim the carrot then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Slice widthways into 1cm thick pieces.
  • Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Pat the hake dry with kitchen paper then season with salt and pepper.
  • Roughly chop the parsley (discard the stalks).
Cook the Veg
2
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, add the onion and carrot. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Fry until soft and sweet, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins.
Simmer the Lentils
3
  • Meanwhile, drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
  • Once the veg has softened, add the lentils.
  • Stir through the passata and vegetable stock powder along with 50ml water and ½ tsp sugar (double both for 4p).
  • Simmer until the carrots are tender, 8-10 mins.

TIP: Add more water if the lentils become too dry!

Wilt the Spinach
4
  • Add the spinach to the lentils, stirring until it's wilted, 1-2 mins.
  • Mix in 1 tbsp butter (double for 4p) along with the parsley.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Fry the Fish
5
  • Place a separate pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once the oil is hot, lay the fish into the pan and fry on one side until golden, 3-4 mins.
  • Turn and cook on the other side, a further 3-4 mins.
  • Add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4p) and harissa to the pan.
  • Cook for 1-2 mins, ensuring the fish is cooked through and well coated on both sides with the harissa butter. IMPORTANT: Fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
Finish and Serve
6
  • Divide the spinach lentils between plates and place the hake on top,
  • Pour over any harissa butter remaining in the pan.
  • Finish with a drizzle of honey.
