Pan Fried Sea bass with Leek and Stilton Croquettes, Cauliflower Puree and Chorizo and Peas
  1. Heat a pan of boiling salty water and cook for 15-20 minutes until soft.
  2. While the potato is cooking, heat the butter in a frying pan and gently fry the leek until soft. Mash the potato until smooth and beat in the leeks, cheese and seasoning to taste. Allow to cool and then set out three plates, one with the flour, one egg and the final one with the breadcrumbs.
  3. Divide the potato into four and roll into balls. Roll the balls first in the flour, then the egg and then finally in the breadcrumbs. Shape the ball into a cube and set aside while you repeat the process with the other potato ball. Chill in the fridge for at least half an hour to firm up.
  4. While the croquettes are chilling, make the puree by chopping up the cauliflower and in a saucepan, add enough milk to cover it, along with the vanilla pod. Bring to the boil and simmer until cooked. Discard the milk and vanilla pod and puree the cauliflower with a blender. Return the puree to the saucepan and when you are ready to serve, heat it through with the butter and season to taste.
  5. Heat a pan of oil to a medium to high temperature and fry the croquette for 5-7 minutes until golden and crispy.
  6. To cook the fish, heat a frying pan to a medium-high temperature and fry the chorizo. Once the oil has seeped out of it, fry the fish skin side down for 3-4 minutes and then flip them over. Add the peas to the pan and fry everything for another 2 minutes, until the fish is cooked through.
  7. Plate up all your yummy ingredients and enjoy!
