Lemon Sole and Olive Sauce with New Potatoes and Courgettes

This is the first dish I have made from Jamie's Super Food book and I have to say it was pretty good. The courgettes were delicious, lovely and sweet, and the tang of the olive sauce was really good with the fish.

Lemon Sole and Olive Sauce with New Potatoes and Courgettes
(from Everyday Super Food by Jamie Oliver)
(Serves 2)

2 large mixed-colour courgettes, quartered lengthways and sliced 2 cm thick
4 garlic cloves, finely sliced
250g baby new potatoes, halved if big
6 black olives, finely sliced
1 spring onion, finely sliced
1 red or green chilli, finely sliced
1/2 bunch mint, finely chopped
juice 2 lemons
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
150g spinach
2 lemon sole fillets

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a casserole pan over a medium heat. Put the garlic followed a min later by the courgettes. Stir well, then pop the lid on and cook for 15 mins, stirring occasionally. Remove the lid, reduce the heat a little and cook for another 5 mins or until sweet.

Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling water for 15 mins or until cooked through, and drain.

Put the olives, spring onion, chilli and mint into a bowl and toss with the juice 1 lemon and the extra-virgin olive oil to make a sauce.

Lightly squash the potatoes, then fold them into the courgettes with the spinach and lay the lemon sole fillets on top. Put the lid back on and leave to steam for 7 mins until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and spoon the olive sauce over the fish and serve.
