Method

  1. Heat the butter in a large sauté pan until starting to sizzle, add the bacon, then fry for a few mins. Add the onion, celery and carrots, then gently cook for 8-10 mins until softening, but not brown. Stir in the thyme and cabbage, then cook for a few mins until the cabbage starts to wilt. Pour in the wine, simmer until evaporated, then add the stock and beans. Season, cover the pan, then simmer gently for 10 mins until the cabbage is soft but still vibrant.
  2. When the cabbage is done, cook the fish. Season each fillet, then dust the skin with flour. Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the fish, skin-side down, for 4 mins until crisp, then flip over and finish on the flesh side until cooked through. Serve each fish fillet on top of a pile of cabbage with a few small potatoes, if you like.

This is one of the few dishes that actually makes you feel healthy by simply eating it. I don't eat meat so added the bacon to my husbands meal at the end. I will definately be making this again.

Saw this in the magazine and thought it would work - and it does!
Didn't think before that cabbage and fish went together but done this way, it's tasty and we enjoyed it with sea bass fillets.
Will try it again with chicken, and might add garlic to it.
