Ingredients (for four)

4 sea bream fillets, scaled and pin bones removed

16 pieces English asparagus

400g Jersey royal potatoes, washed and gently scrubbed

2 lemons

100g capers

1 Cook the potatoes in a pan of salted water with the mint till tender. Once cooked, drain and keep warm.

2 Peel the asparagus and cook in boiling salted water for approx two minutes then refresh in iced water.

3 Cut the bread into small croutons and fry in 20g of butter until golden then drain on kitchen paper. Peel and segment one lemon, then squeeze the remaining lemon and reserve the juice.

4 Using a non-stick pan, heat a little vegetable oil. Season the bream with salt and pepper and place the fillets skin-side down in the pan. Fry the fish without moving it for approx two minutes until the skin is golden brown. Turn the fish over and add 80g butter and spoon over the fish for a further minute. Add the lemon juice and spoon over again.

5 Remove the sea bream and place on a warm plate. Pass the lemon butter from the pan through a sieve into a new pan. Add the crayfish, lemon, parsley and croutons.

6 Warm the asparagus and potatoes in the remaining butter, then place on the plate.

7 Spoon the sauce over the fish and serve.
