We love the instant gratification of food. The best things in life often take a long time to create, but a great meal is the perfect antidote to long-term graft. One minute it’s a picture and a few lines of text on a recipe card, 30 minutes later it’s sitting on a plate in front of you and 5 minutes after that it's gone! This one is definitely best enjoyed with a glass of something cold.

Due to the conflict 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.

Peel and slice the onion in half lengthways through the root. Turn your onion widthways and slice it very thinly into half moon shapes. Peel and finely chop the garlic. Cut the new potatoes and the plum tomatoes in half and very, very finely chop the parsley.


Add a splash of olive oil to a frying pan on medium heat. Add your onion and garlic with a pinch of salt. Tip:If you’re not a huge onion fan, just add half the onion. Gently cook for 10 mins. We don’t want to colour the onion so if it begins to brown, add a splash of water and turn the heat down a little


Meanwhile, bring a medium-sized pot of water with a pinch of salt to the boil on medium-high heat.


Add your new potatoes to the pot and boil for around 12-15 mins. Tip:The potatoes are done when you can easily slip a knife through. When cooked, drain and keep to the side.


When your onion and garlic has been cooking for 10 mins, add your tomatoes to the pan and keep cooking for another 10 mins. The mixture should start to bubble and your tomatoes will soften.


Heat another splash of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan on medium-high heat. Once the oil is very hot, sprinkle a little salt on both sides of each sea bream fillet and lay gently in the pan skin-side down. Cook for 3 mins without touching. Now carefully turn over and cook for another 2 mins, before removing from the heat


Add the white wine vinegar and a sprinkle of sugar (if you have some) to your cherry tomato sauce. Stir and cook for 3 mins before removing from the heat. Stir through half your parsley.


Spoon a generous helping each of your potatoes and your cherry tomato sauce onto a plate. Place your sea bream fillet on top and finish with your remaining parsley sprinkled over. Now get stuck in!
