Method

  1. Whisk together the Sherry or wine vinegar, mustard and oil with some seasoning. Boil the potatoes in salted water until easily pierced with a knife, about 10 mins. Toss in a bowl with threequarters of the dressing and onion slices, then leave to cool a little.
  2. Cut the peel and pith from the orange, then cut into thick slices. Toss the watercress into the salad, then divide between 2 plates and top with the oranges, fish and the remaining dressing.

This was really good and very quick to make.
I made a few substitutions. I swapped the orange for grapefruit (I imagine pretty much any citrus fruit would work) and the onion for spring onions as I don't like raw onion. I also used stir fry greens (chard, spinach, red veined pak choi) and added the hot potatoes to them to wilt them a bit.
