Grilled fish

COVER broad beans with boiling water in a heatproof bowl. Stand for 1 minute and drain. Peel the broad beans.

PREHEAT a grill pan over high heat.

COMBINE mangetout, asparagus and 1 Tbsp. oil in a bowl and season. Coat fish in remaining oil in a dish and season.

COOK fish, skin-side down, for 3 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer fish to a plate and drizzle over the lemon juice. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm.

COOK mangetout and asparagus, turning once during cooking, for 4 minutes or until slightly charred. Transfer to a bowl and cool slightly. Stir in the broad beans, mint leaves, almonds and dressing.

PLACE the salad on a large serving platter and arrange the grilled fish fillets on top to serve.
