Nutritional values

The fish provides a lot of valuable protein and almost half of the daily requirement of iodine, which is essential for the growth of cells and tissues. You also get a good portion of vitamin B12; this supports the new formation of red blood cells and thus the oxygen supply of the whole body.

Chorizo, the typical Spanish hard sausage, is seasoned with plenty of paprika. For those who fine it too spicy can use a simple salami instead.

Slice chorizo and cut into small cubes. Peel shallot and cut into very thin strips.

Fry chorizo ​​and shallots in a small pan over medium heat for 10-12 minutes while stirring. Pour into a fine-mesh sieve and drain well.

Heat a grill pan, add a little olive oil and grill the zucchini slices on both sides until golden brown. Place on a baking tray and season with salt, pepper and a few splashes of lemon juice; there should still be enough free space for the 4 fish fillets to fit.

Drain potatoes and let the liquid evaporate briefly. Puree with the garlic milk mixture until creamy. Season with salt and pepper. Bring chorizo mixture to a boil again before removing from heat. Arrange zucchini slices decoratively on 4 plates. Add mashed potatoes on the zucchini and place a fish fillet, skin side up, on each plate. Drizzle with chorizo broth. Serve garnished with bay leaves.
