Put a Large Saucepan of water with a pinch of salt on to boil for the potatoes. Cut the new potatoes into slices the width of a pound coin. Pop them in your pan of boiling water and cook until just tender, 8-10 mins. Drain in a colander and allow to cool slightly. TIP: Don’t overcook the potatoes as you will cook them again with the chorizo!


Halve, peel and chop the onion into ½cm pieces. Pick the thyme leaves from their stalks (discard the stalks).


Put a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the chorizo and cook for 2 mins to allow the oil to be released. Add the onion and cook until soft, a further 5 mins.


Add the drained potatoes to the frying pan, along with the thyme leaves. Season with a pinch of salt and a few grinds of black pepper. Cook over a medium heat until everything has crisped up, about 8 mins. TIP: Don't move it around too much or you won't get crisp edges but add a drizzle more oil if things start to stick


Meanwhile add a splash of oil to another frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the tilapia fillets with salt and black pepper. TIP: If you have some plain flour you can use it for crispier fish. Simply season 2 tbsp of flour, then coat the fish in the mixture before frying. Lay the fish in the pan skin-side down. Cook for 3-4 mins or until golden brown on one side. Gently turn and cook for 2-3 mins on the other side.


Stir the rocket through your potatoes and serve topped with your tilapia fillets. Squeeze over a little bit of lemon juice and serve with any remaining lemon cut into wedges. Get. Stuck. In.
