Haddock with Pink Grapefruit and Samphire Salsa

This gorgeous recipe works just as well as a speedy midweek dish for 2, as it does cooked for friends at a dinner party. Pink grapefruit, samphire and capers combine to add freshness and piquancy to the dish.

Preparation time: 20 minutes - Cooking time: 30 minutes - Serves: 2

1 medium potato (about 200g), cut into 2cm dice
2 turnips (about 200g), peeled and cut into 2cm dice
1 tbsp olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 rosemary sprig
1 Waitrose & Partners Pink Grapefruit
240g pack MSC skinless boneless haddock fillets
20g unsalted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Toss the diced potato and turnip with ½ tbsp oil, the garlic and rosemary, then season and scatter in a roasting tray. Roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway.

2. Meanwhile, slice the top and bottom off the grapefruit. Using a sharp knife, slice downwards around the grapefruit, following the curve, to remove the skin and pith. Finally, holding the grapefruit over a bowl to catch any juices, slice between the connective membrane to release the segments. Chop the segments and mix with 3-4 tbsp of the juice.

3. Heat the remaining ½ tbsp oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Season the haddock fillets and fry for 2½ minutes on each side. Set aside on a plate. Add the butter to the pan, then stir in the shallot. Add the samphire and 1 tbsp water and fry, stirring over a medium heat for 3 minutes. Stir in the capers, remove from the heat and carefully stir through the grapefruit and juice.

4. Divide the roasted vegetables between 2 plates, top with the haddock fillets, then spoon over the grapefruit salsa.

Cook’s tip

Speed things up with a pack of parmentier potatoes rather than preparing your own potatoes and turnips.

Pair with a zesty coastal white wine, such as the deliciously refreshing Waitrose & Partners Vina Taboexa AlbariƱo, Spain.
