1 whole John Dory, 750g-1kg
500g new potatoes
15g fresh coriander
15g fresh dill
15g fresh parsley
1 lemon, zest and juice
3 cloves garlic
salt and pepper
For the marinade:
Preheat the oven to 190°C.
First create the marinade. Add all the ingredients, apart from the olive oil, to a blender. After 20 seconds of blending, very slowly add olive oil until it creates a smooth green sauce (like the vid on this post). Set aside.
Chop the new potatoes in half and boil for 10 minutes. Drain and let steam for 2 minutes. Add the samphire and a dollop of the marinade, mixing together until covered.
Pat the John Dory dry and generously season with salt and pepper. Rub the remaining marinade over the John Dory and inside the cavity.
Place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Arrange the potatoes and samphire around the fish and roast for 25 minutes. Once cooked, rest for 5 minutes.
Serve up plates of potatoes and the crispy samphire. Use a knife and fork to gently slide the white meat from the bones.
