    small fish fillets, flathead if you live in OZ (I say 12-16 depending on whether you want to do 3 or 4 fillets per person, I prefer 4 so take your p)

  • Peel sweet potato and cut into thick slices (about 2cm each slice). Boil steam or microwave until just tender. Heat some oil in a pan, add sweet potato slices and brown on both sides.
  • Mix flour with some salt and pepper, sprinkle fish with garlic on both sides, dip fillets into flour, shake off any excess.
  • Add fillets to a heated pan and cook until browned on both sides, remember they are small fillets so cooking time will be quick.
