  1. Step 1

    To make the pickled peppers, place the capsicum in a heatproof jar. In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, sugar, 2 tbs water and 1 tsp sea salt flakes to the boil, whisking to dissolve the sugar. Pour enough vinegar mixture over capsicum to cover. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Step 2

    Place potatoes in a large saucepan and add enough water to come 2cm above the potatoes in the pan. Add 2 tsp salt and bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10-12 mins or until the potatoes are tender (when the potatoes are done a sharp knife should be able to pierce a piece of potato easily). Drain the potatoes and carefully transfer to a rimmed baking tray. Cool for 5 mins.
  3. Step 3

    Drain the pickled peppers, reserving 2 tbs pickling liquid. In a large bowl, whisk 2 tbs oil, shallots, dill, combined mustard, 1 tsp sea salt flakes, 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper and the reserved pickling liquid. Add the potatoes and toss to combine.
  4. Step 4

    Pat the fish dry with paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Heat 2 large non-stick frying pans over medium-high heat (if you only have 1 non-stick pan, cook fish in batches). Divide the remaining oil between the pans. Divide the fish and lemon halves, cut-side down, between the pans and cook for 3 mins or until fish is golden brown. Turn fish and cook for a further 2-3 mins or until fish is cooked through and the lemon halves are lightly charred.
  5. Step 5

    Arrange the potato mixture, fish and lemon halves on a serving platter. Serve with the pickled peppers.
