Serves 2
Ingredients

500g chunk of Turbot on the bone
Olive oil for frying

 

For the béarnaise
2 egg yolks
1tbsp cold water
200g unsalted butter, melted
Juice of 1 lemon

A handful of tarragon leaves, chopped finely

Salt and pepper for seasoning

Method

Heat the oven to the hottest temperature.

 

Put the eggs and water into a bowl and whisk over a medium heat until it doubles in size and thickens, careful not to do this for too long or you’ll end up with scrambled eggs.

 

Remove from the heat and in a gentle stream pour in the butter whilst whisking.  The sauce will thicken further.  Add the lemon juice and some seasoning and the tarragon.

 

Pan fry  the turbot for 2-3 minutes on each side until the white colours slightly the put in the hot oven and roast on high for approximately 15 minutes.

 

Serve with the béarnaise sauce – couldn’t be simpler, a classic, tasty luxury for an occasion.
