John Dory with Garlic Potatoes

I love this recipe, beautifully simple but fantastically tasty, great for a supper or dinner party, there's a bit of faff with the potatoes, but it's well worth the effort

This recipe will serve 4 people


4 John Dory Fillets about 150g each

50g of butter

A couple of garlic cloves finely chopped

A good splash of olive oil

A half handful of fresh chopped rosemary and thyme in equal amounts


500ml of chicken stock (buy it! I'm not going to tell anyone)

100g of butter

4 shallots, peeled, cut in half and thinly sliced

4 bay leaves

8 cloves of garlic thinly sliced

A half handful of fresh chopped thyme

500g of charlotte potatoes cut into thin slices


Put the chopped rosemary and thyme into a bowl and add a good splash of olive oil, about 50ml
