Serves: 2 

  • 1 knob butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 skinless haddock fillets
  • 4 courgettes
  • 1/2 marinated pepper, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 50ml single cream

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic, lemon juice and fish fillets and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
  2. Trim the ends off the courgettes then cut into 'spaghetti' by using a julienne slicer. Peel down to the start of the inner seeds, but no further. The core of the courgette does not hold up well when cooked this way.
  3. Warm a little oil in a wok over a high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the courgette. Cook and stir for about 1 to 2 minutes, moving the courgette around constantly, just until the courgette has becomes slightly tender and warm through. Immediately transfer to a warmed serving bowl. Immediately transfer to a warmed serving bowl.
  4. Working quickly, increase the heat to high, flake the fish then add the peppers, chives and capers and cream and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Spoon over the courgettes and serve immediately.


Haddock is a personal favourite, but any white fish such as cod will work well for this dish.
