Dr Rupy said: “Tenderstem® broccoli is nutritionally dense and the perfect hero ingredient for this fish tray bake – adding gorgeous greenness and crunch. This recipe uses za’atar which is one of my favourite spice blends; it’s a great ingredient to have in your store cupboard to add a flavour injection to healthy ingredients like fish and roasted veg.”

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (fan assisted)/200ºC/Gas mark 6.

  2. Arrange the fennel, red pepper and halved garlic bulb in a baking tray then add the za’atar and the olives. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with half the olive oil, then bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through until the vegetables have taken on some colour.

  3. When the roasted vegetables have about 10 minutes left to cook, blanch the Tenderstem® broccoli in boiling water for 1 minute then drain and set aside.

  4. Cut the fish fillets into 4cm chunks, keeping the skin on to hold the fish together.

  5. Add the fish to the roasting tray and give everything a good mix around. Arrange the Tenderstem® broccoli on top then drizzle with the remaining oil and add a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Return to the oven and roast for another 8 to 10 minutes until the fish is cooked through.

  6. Remove the skin from the chunks of fish, squeeze out the cloves of garlic from the roasted bulb and use as many as desired, then garnish with the fennel fronds and serve.
