Sea Bass with Pistachio recipe by Tom Aikens


40g chopped pistachios

40ml Borderfields Rapeseed oil

40ml pistachio oil (if available - try delis)

200g mixed salad leaves

2 x 150g sea bass

1/2 lemon


Place the seabass on a tray and smear in the pistachio oil and 20ml of Borderfields rapeseed oil, season well and cover with the chopped pistachio. Place the tray in the oven at 160c to bake for approx 12 minutes.

Squeeze a little lemon juice over the fish and then place in the middle of a plate. Dress the leaves in the remaining Borderfields rapeseed oil, add seasoning, bit of lemon juice, pistachios and place around the plate.
