Due to the war in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Olive Oil for the Crumb
Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
Chop the potatoes into 2cm chunks (no need to peel). Pop them onto a large baking tray.
Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle over half the mustard seeds. Toss to coat, then spread out in a single layer. TIP: Use two baking trays if necessary.
When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until golden, 25-35 mins. Turn halfway through.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the panko breadcrumbs and North Indian style spice mix.
Add the olive oil for the crumb (see pantry for amount), then season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Pat the sea bass with kitchen paper to remove any excess moisture, then lay the fillets, skin-side down, onto a lined baking tray.
Spread the mango chutney over the top of the fish and top with the breadcrumb mixture. Press it down with a spoon, then set aside for now. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw fish.
Zest and cut the lime into wedges. Trim the green beans. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
In another small bowl, mix together the mayo with the lime zest. Season with salt and pepper.
About 10 mins before the potatoes are cooked, bake the sea bass on the middle shelf of the oven until the crumb is golden and the fish is cooked through, 10-15 mins. IMPORTANT: The fish is cooked when opaque in the middle.
While everything cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
Once hot, add the green beans. Season with salt and pepper, then stir-fry until starting to char, 2-3 mins.
Stir in the garlic and remaining mustard seeds and cook for 1 min.
Add a splash of water and immediately cover with a lid or some foil. Allow to cook until the beans are tender, 4-5 mins.
When everything's ready, plate up your sea bass with the potatoes and green beans alongside.
Serve with a dollop of zesty mayo and the lime wedges for squeezing over.
