  • 4 garrick, fillets (about 150g each)
  • olive oil

Pumpkin sauce and wafer


To serve

To make the pumpkin sauce, add a little olive oil to a large pan and place over a moderate heat. Add the chopped shallot and garlic and sweat down until softened but without colour. Add the chopped pumpkin to the pan and cook for a few minutes more
Stir in the white wine to deglaze the pan, then add enough water to the pan to cover the pumpkin. Season with salt and pepper, bring to a simmer then continue to cook for 40 minutes until the pumpkin is completely soft
Transfer everything to a blender and blitz until smooth before passing through a fine sieve to ensure there are no lumps. Reserve half of the sauce in the fridge until ready to serve
Thinly spread the other half of the pumpkin sauce out across a silicone mat or lined baking tray, so you have an even layer about 2mm thick. Place in a dehydrator at 65°C for 6 hours (or in the oven at its lowest setting) to completely dry out
Place a non-stick frying pan over a high heat with a little olive oil. Add the garrick fillets skin-side down to the pan, cook for 3–4 minutes until the skin is crispy, then turn the fillets over and cook the other side for a further minute
  • 4 garrick, fillets (about 150g each)
  • olive oil
Allow the fillets to rest for a few minutes off the heat while you prepare the miso. Place in a bowl with a teaspoon of warm water and whisk together – add more water as needed to create a purée consistency and transfer to a squeezy bottle
Once dried, snap the pumpkin sheet into wafers and set aside until ready to serve
When ready to serve, add the reserved pumpkin sauce to a small pan and heat through
To plate, spoon a little of the reserved pumpkin sauce onto each plate and dot around the miso purée. Place the cashew nuts over the dots of miso and place the garrick fillets on the centre of the plate. Garnish with some of the reserved wafers and sprigs of chamomile (or santolina)
