  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove peeled, crushed
  • 400g (14oz) can of cannellini beans rinsed and drained
  • juice of ½ a lemon plus extra wedges to serve
  • 3 tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Artichoke Puree
  • 235g (8oz) bag of ready-washed spinach
  • 2 Waitrose & Partners Boneless Sea Bass Fillets


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Fry the garlic for 30 seconds; add the beans and a pinch of salt. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then take off the heat. Add a splash of lemon juice and a grinding of black pepper; mash with a potato masher. Stir in the artichoke puree and add a splash of water to loosen if needed. Set aside; cover to keep warm.

  2. Meanwhile, heat ½ tbsp oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the spinach and fry, stirring, until wilted and any excess liquid has evaporated. Add a little of the lemon juice and season to taste, then divide between 2 plates.

  3. Wipe out the pan and return to a medium-high heat. Pat the fish dry with kitchen paper; season. Add the remaining oil to the pan and fry the fish skin-side down for 3 minutes. Turn the fillets over, add the remaining lemon juice and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Serve at once with the mash, spinach and extra lemon wedges for squeezing.
