  3. Lay the fish on top of the roasted roots and cook for 15 mins or so more, until the fish is just cooked through. Make sure green veg purée is still hot and serve alongside the fish and roots.

Great puree, reduced the spinach by half. I think some basil or mint would be really nice blended through, will try next time. Will definitely make the puree again with lots of other things.
