The star of this delicious summery dish is the sea bass from the guys over at J.K. Mayfair (who also supply fish to the Queen!). The trick with getting a crispy skin on your fish is to use a medium-hot pan, and while the skin is cooking, try not to move the fish…it’s that easy!

Peel the outside green part of the cucumber and discard. Peel strips of cucumber lengthways all the way round (you won’t need the squidgy seeds in the middle). Peel and very thinly slice half the red onion into half moon shapes (you want this as thin as your knife skills allow).


Mix the cucumber and onion slices with 1/4 tbsp of salt and leave in a colander for 10 mins.Tip: If you don’t like raw onion, leave it out at this stage and add it in at the end.


Put a large pot of water on to boil with 1/4 tsp of salt. Wash the new potatoes and cut into quarters. Cook in the boiling water for 10-15 mins or until just tender. Tip: The potatoes are cooked when you can easily slip a knife through them.


Squeeze the moisture out of the cucumber and onion(preferably between a few sheets of kitchen paper). Then rinse under cold running water. Mix the vinegar in a bowl with 1/2 tsp of sugar(if you have some) until dissolved. Add three-quarters of your dressing (keep the rest for later) to your cucumber and onion mixture.Put in your fridge until needed.


Heat a large frying pan with 1 tbsp of oil over medium-high heat. When hot, add the fish skin-side down and season the flesh-side with salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 mins then turn over and turn off the heat, letting the residual heat from the pan cook the other side.


Finely chop the dill and mix through your cucumber relish at the last moment. Taste for seasoning and add more salt or pepper as needed.


Make the salad by picking the leaves from the baby gem lettuce and adding a drizzle of olive oil, a small pinch of salt and pepper and the remaining dressing. Toss your potatoes in a drizzle of olive oil and another pinch of salt and pepper if needed. Serve the new potatoes topped with your seared sea bass, a generous helping of your cucumber relish and the baby gem lettuce.
