Fish curry

Fish curry with spinach salad and sweet potato
For the fish curry
85g/3oz cashew nuts
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ red chilli, chopped
85g/3oz pollack fillet, skinned and chopped

1 free-range egg, beaten
2 tbsp vegetable oil
For the spinach salad
½ lemon, juice only
1 handful baby spinach
2 tbsp fresh coriander, chopped
For the sliced sweet potatoes
1 sweet potato, thinly sliced on a mandoline
1 tbsp olive oil
½ lemon, juice only
½ tsp curry powder

For the fish curry, place the cashew nuts, spices and chilli into a food processor and blend until smooth. Transfer to a shallow dish and reserve a tablespoon of the mixture for the spinach salad.

Coat the fish in the beaten egg, then roll in the spice mix. Heat the vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry the fish for 5-6 minutes, or until golden-brown all over and cooked through.

For the spinach salad, mix the reserved spice mixture with the lemon juice. Place the baby spinach and coriander into a bowl and pour over the lemon and spice mixture, then toss well to combine.

For the sweet potatoes, place the sweet potato slices into a saucepan with the oil, lemon juice and curry powder, and enough boiling water to cover. Simmer gently with a lid on for 7-8 minutes, or until the sweet potato is tender.

To serve, spoon the sweet potato slices onto a serving plate and arrange the spinach salad alongside. Spoon the fish curry on top of the sweet potato slices.
