Method

  1. To make this superfood recipe (opens in new tab), heat 2tbsp olive oil in a frying pan. Season the flesh of the sea bass and then fry it, skin-side down, in 2 batches, if necessary. Use spatulas to press the fish down flat and cook for 3-5 mins, until the skin starts to go crispy, then turn it over and cook for a further 3-5 mins, or until the fish is cooked through. Remove the fish from the pan and keep it warm.
  2. Clean the pan and add the remaining oil to it and heat it. Add the beetroot and cook it over a medium heat for about 3-4 mins, stirring it regularly, until it's warmed through. Add the spring onion and lime rind and juice and warm through.
  3. Stir in the mint and season to taste just before serving. Arrange 2 sea-bass fillets on each plate and spoon the beetroot salsa over and serve immediately, with slices of lime. (Not suitable for freezing).
