Serves 4

15ml (1 tablespoon) olive oil

Preserved Lemon & Truffle Aioli

1 heaped tablespoon preserved lemon, finely diced
45ml (3 tablespoons) Stonebarn Truffle Aioli (Imported by The Truffle Lady SA)
30ml (2 tablespoons) olive oil
15ml (1 tablespoon) lemon juice
A generous handful flat leaf parsley, roughly chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Truffle Aioli, combine the preserved lemon and Truffle Aioli in a small mixing bowl.  Add the olive oil, lemon juice and chopped parsley. Season to taste then chill until ready to serve.

Place the flour in a large, shallow plate. Season well with salt and black pepper. Coat the fish in the seasoned flour, shaking off the excess.

In a heavy-based pan, heat the oil and butter together until bubbling. Lay the fish in the hot oil, skin side down. Cook over a medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.  
Turn carefully and cook until golden, about 3 minutes. Add the lemon juice and swirl to coat the fish. Scatter with chopped parsley and serve with Truffle Aioli.
