Mediterranean fish with Swiss chard, olives & capers.

Over the last 6 weeks I have thoroughly enjoyed many a summer menu in various locations around the world & UK.  Maybe at times, over indulged.  With lack of gym action, let’s just say I possibly have allowed my Italian mamma gene to surface. So back in the kitchen tonight, I was adamant that I needed to cook & eat something healthy. Craving the flavours of the med & earthy vegetables I came up with this fish concoction.


300g haddock loin

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

200g Swiss chard

10 cherry tomatoes, halved

50g pitted green olives

1 tbs capers

  • First prep the Swiss chard.  Wash the leaves & cut the stalks away from the leaves.
  • Cook the leaves in salted boiling water for 2 minutes.
  • In a wide saucepan, drizzle olive oil, season the  haddock, chop in large chunks,  add to the pan and pan fry for 5-10 minutes. Remove from the pan.
  • Add the Swiss chard to the pan with the garlic & cherry tomatoes, season and cook together for 5 minutes on a medium heat.
  • Then add back the cooked haddock with the olives & capers. Mix all the ingredients together. Cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Serve up in bowls. Lush served with crusty bread if you feel need some carbs in your life.
