Friday : a meal based around a sauce

The idea started with a couple of wedges of iceberg lettuce. These led me to the idea of making mayonnaise, which led to fish. The potatoes were obvious from there.

I started with the mayo: ratio from Ratio, with plenty of lemon and a good quantity of piment d'espelette. I stirred some chives into the finished product.

On the plates were: fish, potatoes, tomatoes, and the iceberg wedges that started the idea.

For the fish I did Goldbutt (plaice) fillets seasoned with salt and pepper and then sautéed on one side. The potatoes were simply steamed.

As a vegetable side I sautéed zucchini with onion and finished it with some chopped basil.

A really nice and simple meal.
