For the fish
For the succotash:
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1 tbsp dried coriander
- ¼ tsp smoked paprika
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 x 170g white fish fillets such as hake or haddock
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 red onion, finely chopped
- 1 courgette, finely chopped
- 1 green pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
- 2 x 198g tins of sweetcorn, drained
- 1 tbsp cumin
- ½ tbsp dried coriander
- Pinch of cayenne pepper
- Salt and black pepper
- 120ml chicken stock
- Juice of 1 lime
- 3-4 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
Preheat the oven to 180˚C/160˚C fan/gas mark 4.
Mix the first four ingredients for the fish together in a wide shallow bowl. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium-high heat. Dredge the fish in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Sear the fillets in the hot pan for two minutes per side until golden brown.
Transfer to a baking dish and place in the oven for 5-6 minutes or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily.
In a large pan, heat the oil for the succotash over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the courgette and pepper and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add the garlic, chilli, corn, cumin, coriander, cayenne and some salt and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken stock and simmer until reduced.
Squeeze the juice of a small lime and stir in the fresh coriander. Season to taste and divide between serving bowls.
Top the succotash with the pan-fried fish and serve with extra lime wedges and some fresh coriander.
