To serve

  • Quick garlic mayonnaise (optional) - see recipe in tip


  • STEP 1

    Boil a full kettle of water and heat the grill to high. Heat 1 tsp oil in a large frying pan. Squeeze the meat from the chorizo directly into the pan. Add the onion and fry for 5 mins, crushing the meat with a spatula until broken up, golden and surrounded by its juices. The onion will also be soft and golden.

  • STEP 2

    Meanwhile, put the spinach in a colander, slowly pour over the boiled water to wilt it, then run under the cold tap. Squeeze out the excess water using your hands, then set aside. Line a baking tray with foil, rub with a little oil and place the fish on top. Season, sprinkle over the smoked paprika and drizzle with a little more oil.

  • STEP 3

    Tip the chilli into the pan with the sausages, fry for 1 min more, then add the beans, spinach, lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. Let it warm through gently, then season to taste.

  • STEP 4

    Grill the fish for 5 mins or until flaky but not dry – you won’t need to turn it. Spoon the bean mixture onto plates, then carefully top with the fish and any juices from the tray. Serve with a dollop of Quick garlic mayonnaise (see recipe, right), if you like.


Add 2 egg yolks to a medium bowl with the zest 1 lemon, 2 tsp each lemon juice and Dijon mustard, 1 small crushed garlic clove and some seasoning. Beat with electric hand beaters until combined – then, beating continually, very slowly trickle in 200ml mild olive oil to make a thick, silky mayonnaise. If you add it too quickly, the sauce will split, so take care. Season and add a little more lemon juice if needed. If it tastes right but feels a bit too thick, loosen with a little water. Cover and chill. Will keep for up to 3 days.
