  1. Prep and cook potatoes Preheat oven to 230oC. Cut potatoes into 0.5cm rounds. Toss rounds on a lined oven tray with a drizzle of oil and sumac. Season and cook for 20-25 minutes, until golden and crispy. Turn once to ensure even cooking. Check on rounds to ensure they don’t burn.
  2. Prep fish Pat fish dry and remove any scales or bones. Dice fish 3cm, then add to a medium bowl with ½ tsp salt and cornflour. Toss to coat well. In a small bowl, whisk egg, then add to bowl with fish. Toss fish gently to coat well.
  3. Crumb fish Place breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Place handfuls of fish into the breadcrumbs and coat well.
  4. Make dressing and salad In a medium bowl, mix all salad dressing ingredients together. Shred lettuce; thinly slice spinach and apple; dice cucumber 1cm; grate carrot. Add all to the bowl with dressing and toss to combine. Season to taste.
  5. Cook fish Heat a drizzle of oil in a large fry-pan on medium-high heat. Cook fish for 1–2 minutes each side, until golden and cooked through.
  6. Serve potato, fish and salad on plates, then dollop aioli on the side.
