Simple, yet very tasty with a mediterranean twist! :)


  • Two large fresh fish fillets (preferably dory)

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • half a fresh lime

  • cracked sea salt & pepper

  • mixed leaf salad

  • 1 roma tomato

  • 10 kalamata olives

  • 3 mushrooms

  • 1/2 spanish onion

  • greek fetta cheese

  • 1/2 cup of cous cous

  • tablespoon pine nuts

  • olive oil

  • balsamic vinegar


  • 1.

    Whilst pre-heating the oven at around 150 degrees (for fan-forced), begin to prepare the salad.

  • 2.

    Bring to boil about 1/2 a cup of water in small saucepan, for cous cous (instructions for cous cous usually on packet). Once cooked, put aside & stir occasionaly.

  • 3.

    Place fish fillets separately, on slice of aluminium foil (about 3 times the width of the fillet) & curve in at edges before drizzling the fillet with a dash of white wine & lime juice.

  • 4.

    Cut garlic clove into tiny portions, then sprinkle evenly onto fish.

  • 5.

    Add a dash of olive oil, then fold in all edges of foil to make an enclosed package with little air escape.

  • 6.

    Place in oven on tray & steam until cooked (about 5-10mins)

  • 7.

    Cut roma tomato in long thin portions (about 8 per half)

  • 8.

    Slice mushrooms in medium thickness

  • 9.

    Slice spanish onion in thin rounds

  • 10.

    Slice each olive in half

  • 11.

    Trow in pine nuts

  • 12.

    Add ingredients to bowl of mixed salad leaves, drizzle lightly with olive oil & balsamic vinegar (separately), then toss lightly using both hands.

  • 13.

    Crumble 4x1cm cubes of fetta onto salad, then cous-cous & toss lightly again

  • 14.

    (drizzle more oil & balsamic if needed)


Remove fish from foil, before plating up! (optional to include the yummy juices it was cooking in - but recommended)

Serve with a dallop of tzatziki on the side!

I love this! I do something similar but with rice. Mum used to make fried fish, salad and rice pilaf for dinner and I would mush it all up on the plate and add extra vinaigrette.
