    Cook’s tips

    Serve any leftovers cold as a salad the following day. The potato salad is also an ideal accompaniment to oily fish such as salmon or sardines.

    Drink's recommendation

    This flavoursome fish with mustard is simply crying out for a bright, crisp white. Try this fabulous Italian example: Zenato Villa Flora 2009 Lugana, Veneto, Italy.
