1 Boil potatoes in a small pan until cooked. Drain and set aside. Crush potatoes with the back of a fork.
2 In a small bowl combine cashew nuts and breadcrumbs. Mix well. Dip fish into egg mixture then into cashew mixture and evenly coat fillets. Set aside.
3 Use a stick blender to combine peas and cooking cream until smooth. Place in a small pan and heat until warmed through.
4 Heat a non-stick frying pan with spray oil. When hot add fish and pan-fry until cooked.
5 Serve fish on top of potatoes and top with pea purée. Serve with side salad.
- If tarakihi isn’t available, use any kind of firm white fish. Snapper or monkfish would work well. For a different nut flavour, use almonds or hazelnuts instead of cashews.
- And be adventurous with your vegetable complement. You can easily jazz up a potato mash by adding other root vegetables — pumpkin or kumara work well and add colour. And don’t forget variation with your greens. Add some broccolini and green beans to raise the good nutrition stakes.
