Easy As Pan Fried Australian Flathead with Lemon Yoghurt and salad
Broad Bean and Fennel Salad
Lemon Yoghurt
Broad Bean and Fennel Salad
  1. Kick things off by prepping the broad bean and fennel salad: add all the ingredients to a bowl, season, and toss to combine. Ta da, the salad’s done!
Lemon Yoghurt
  1. To make the zesty lemon yoghurt: combine the ingredients in a bowl and give it a stir
  1. Now for the main event – the fish! Pat the flatty fillets dry with absorbent paper, and heat a large non-stick pan over a medium-high heat. Toss in the olive oil and a knob of butter, wait for the butter to bubble, then add the fish, in batches, skin side down and cook for 4 minutes. Flip it and cook for another 1-2 minutes
  2. Now it’s showtime. Place the flatty fillets on a plate, add some salad and a dollop of your lemon yoghurt. Done. Easy peasy lemon squeezy

Too tart and bitter

I cooked this recipe and I’m an experienced home cook. The fish is OK but nothing special. The sauce is far too tart and needs sweetness (honey would work) and the salad is bitter and not very pleasant at all. I will not eat or cook it again and would advice to stay away from this recipe
