Step 1

Mix the smoked sea salt and flour together and coat the haddock fillet on both sides.

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large frying pan and add the shallots, tomatoes, lemon zest, juice and parsley and fry for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the shallots are cooked and the tomatoes are soft but still whole. Push them to one side of the pan, adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and add the other teaspoon of oil.

Fry the haddock in the oil for 3 to 5 minutes on one side (depends on the thickness) before carefully turning over and frying for a further 3 to 5 minutes on the other side.

Spoon the tomato mixture into a heated bowl, then carefully place the haddock on top, garnish with parsley and squeeze some more lemon juice over the top, serve immediately.
