Recipe Steps

1. Before you start

Preheat oven to 220°C (or 200°C fan bake). Bring a medium pot of salted water to the boil. Set aside a medium baking dish about 30 x 20cm.

2. Prep & cook kumara

Prep kumara and toss on a lined oven tray with oil. Season with salt and pepper and roast on lower oven rack for 20-25 minutes, until tender.

3. Prep & cook gratin

Prep cauliflower, broccoli and leek. Cook cauliflower in pot of boiling water for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, add broccoli and cook for a further 3 minutes, until tender. Drain and spread evenly in baking dish. Reserve pot.

4. Finish gratin

Heat oil in reserved pot on medium-high heat. Add leek, salt and water measure, stir and cover with a lid. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until tender. Once tender, add lemon pepper and cornflour and cook for 30 seconds. Add stock, bring to a simmer and simmer for 2 minutes, until thickened. Remove from heat and stir through sour cream. Pour sauce over veggies, sprinkle over crushed seeds and Parmesan. Set aside.

5. Prep fish

Pat fish dry and remove any scales or bones. Cut larger fillets in half and season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Prep lemon.

6. Grill gratin

When kumara has cooked, remove from oven and keep warm. Switch oven to high grill. Grill gratin for 3-5 minutes, until golden.

7. Meanwhile, cook fish

Heat oil in a medium non-stick fry-pan on medium-high heat. Cook fish for 2-3 minutes each side (depending on thickness), or until just cooked through. Squeeze lemon juice over fish before serving.

8. Serve

Fish with gratin and kumara.
