Everyone loves a good piece of fresh white fish, especially a nice piece of pan fried John Dory. While it might be a less oily fish, it is still packed with omega 3, magnesium, iodine, selenium, and DHA and EPA. John Dory is also light in taste (if you don’t like an overly ‘fishy’ tasting fish!) and super easy to cook. This Mediterranean dish is one of many favourites because it is zesty, healthy and quick to cook any day of the week. You can order a fish fillets online today with Manettas Seafood Market and have it delivered to your door!

Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Turn the oven on to 220 degrees celsius.
Marinate the John Dory with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For the salsa, finely chop the capsicum, olives, parsley, chilli, capers and red onion, and place into a small bowl. Add olive oil, lemon, season with salt and pepper and mixing well.
Place the beans and potatoes into a steamer and steam until soft.
Place the potatoes on a baking tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper and place into the oven.
In a frying pan on medium heat, add the steamed beans and 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cover for 3 minutes, shaking the pan to move the beans around. Once the beans look slightly charred, remove and place on a plate.
In a clean pan fry the fillets, skin side down, pouring in any remaining marinade over the fillets. Cover the pan and leave for 2 minutes. The time may vary depending on the thickness of the fillet. Once cooked through remove from the pan and season with salt and pepper.
Arrange the beans, potatoes, fish and salsa to your liking and serve. Enjoy!
