Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Do the Prep

Preheat your grill to high. Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on high heat. Add the chorizo, potatoes and half the paprika and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 8-9 mins. Season with plenty of salt and pepper.

Meanwhile, zest and cut the lemon into wedges. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the parsley (stalks and all).

Step 2: Cook the Fish

Pop the remaining paprika, lemon zest, half the parsley and olive oil (see ingredients for amounts) into a bowl. Mix and season with salt and pepper.

Pop the sea bass fillets into the bowl with the paprika mixture and turn to coat well. Line a baking tray with foil and lay the sea bass fillets on it skin side up.

Cook under the grill until cooked through and the skin is crispy, 5-6 mins.

IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.

Step 3: Prep the Spinach

Meanwhile, heat a drizzle of oil in a large saucepan over medium high heat and once hot add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add the spinach a handful at a time to the garlic pan with a splash of water, season with salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until wilted, 2-3 mins.

When everything is ready, stir the remaining parsley through the potatoes.

Step 4: Finish and Serve the Dish

Divide the potatoes, sea bass and spinach between your plates (making sure you leave the excess water from the spinach in the pan).

Serve with the mayonnaise and lemon wedges alongside and enjoy!
