Method

  1. Coat the tilapia fillets with the tandoori paste and set aside. Put the sweet potatoes, carrots and garlic in a large pan of salted water. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 mins or until tender. Drain well, then allow to steam-dry for a few mins. Add the chilli to the pan and mash everything together with some seasoning. Cover and keep warm.
  2. Heat the grill to high. Grill the tilapia for 8-10 mins or until cooked through. Meanwhile, mix the salad ingredients together and serve alongside the tilapia and mash.

Delicious. Simple to make and quick. We used Patak balti paste to coat the fish and I couldn't get hold of tilapia so used haddock instead. I think any white fish would do just fine. We added spinach and lime juice to the salad but otherwise it worked pretty well as described. Will definitely be making again.

Really nice if you add a bit of chopped fresh ginger into the mash as well.

This is a really interesting little meal to do something different with a cheap piece of (slightly boring) white fish. I stirred a little spicy mango chutney and a teaspoon or so of black onion seeds into the mash. Yummers. I've also used river cobbler instead of tilapia when it was easier and cheaper to get.
