    A pan, to fry the fish. A pot, to steam the vegetables

    Fill a pot with room temperature water. Salt it. Put in the potatoes and bring to a boil. The rest of the vegetables as follows:
    1. After 5 minutes add the carrots
    2. Another 5 minutes add in the broccoli

    Heat some oil in your frying pan. Season the fish fillet with salt, pepper and some thyme. On a medium high heat, start pan frying the fish fillets. They take roughly 3-5 minutes each side.

    Just before serving, while the fish is still warm, put the lemon herb butter provided on the top and serve with the vegetables. Sprinkle some thyme on top if you want.
