Cabbage and beans with white fish : Wk25/2

Serves 4 : Very easy : Quick
4 large fillets of hake (skin on)

4 rashers back bacon, all visible fat removed, chopped
1 onion, sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
2 large carrots, chopped
2 baby cabbages, shredded
1 large potato, cut into small chunks
½ cup dry white wine (optional)
250ml chicken stock
1 x ±440gm tin cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

Spray a large pan with non-stick cooking spray and place over heat.
Dry fry the bacon for a few minutes and then add the onion, celery and carrots.
Continue stir frying until the onion begins to soften.
Add the potato pieces.
Pour in the wine (if using) and the stock.
Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cabbage and the beans and lots of black pepper.
Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes. (The cabbage should still have some crunch)

Now spray a large frying pan with non-stick cooking spray and place over heat.
Spray the fish with non-stick cooking spray, too.
Place the fish in the pan, skin side down.
Cook for about 5 minutes before turning.
Cook the other side until the fish flakes easily.
(Cooking time depends on whether your fish is fresh or frozen)

Serve the fish on top of the cabbage and beans.

I cut my fish fillets in half to accommodate them in the pan – they were about 140gm each.
Cabbage done this way is really delicious.
I left the skin on my potato and par-cooked it in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
