8–10 ounces halibut or if you like works well with Salmon, Tofu, Sea Bass, Cod, Scallops, Shrimp)

1 garlic clove, smashed

1–2 tablespoons olive oil

For the noodles

Preheat oven to 375F, 190C, gas mark 5

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and add smashed garlic clove and swirl to infuse garlic into the oil.

Pat fish dry and season with salt and pepper. Sear both sides until golden. Once both sides are golden, place in the warm oven until cooked through to your liking. About 3 – 6 minutes – time will depend on thickness of the cut.

In a large skillet, heat more oil over medium heat and add shallots and garlic, stirring until softened and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add courgette noodles and season with salt and pepper. Sauté until noodles soften, about 4 minutes. Toss in lemon zest, fresh parsley and a squeeze of lemon. Taste for salt and lemon and adjust if necessary. Divide among two bowls and top with the halibut.

    • I have loads of courgette/zucchini in my garden so was experimenting. I think roasting the courgettes with maybe some bell peppers would also work the finish off with some parmesan cheese
