About This Recipe


For the salad:
1 vegetable stock cube
½ cup puy green lentils
½ cup giant couscous

1 cup shelled edamame (soy beans)
½ red pepper, finely chopped
the seeds from ½ a pomegranate
1 cup (about ½ a 
400g can) of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 medium carrot, peeled and grated
4 spring onions, finely chopped
2 handfuls of baby spinach, shredded
1 handful of rocket
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
¼ cup of fresh parsley leaves, chopped

For the salad dressing:
4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp clear honey
1 tsp dijon mustard
zest and juice of 1 lime

For the seabass:
4 fillets of sea bass, skin on
5cm piece of root ginger, skinned and cut into fine matchsticks
2 long red chillies, cut into matchsticks
2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
2 spring onions, cut into 5cm long matchsticks
soy sauce


  1. Boil some water (about 1½ litres). Crumble in the stock cube, then add the lentils. Boil for 7 minutes, then add the giant couscous and continue to boil for another 7-8 minutes until both are tender to the bite. Drain and refresh in cold water. Shake off any excess water and put the lentil and couscous mix into a large bowl.
  2. Add the rest of the salad ingredients to the bowl and toss gently.
  3. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and whisk with a fork until the honey has dissolved. Pour over the salad and then spoon into serving dishes.
  4. Cook the fish in a hot frying pan with a little wok oil, skin-side down, for 5 minutes until almost cooked through. Flip it over and cook the other side for 30 seconds, then remove from the pan and set aside on some kitchen paper.
  5. Fry the ginger, chilli and garlic for 2 minutes, then add the spring onions, stir for a moment and remove from the heat. Place the cooked fish on top of the salad, sprinkle a little soy sauce over the fish and then top with the fried vegetables. Serve immediately.
