Each bite is packed with the perfect balance of sweet and savouriness. The crunch of the pecans is a nice contrast to the delicate texture of fish!

Instructions:

Step 1

In a small saucepan, combine the berries, sage leaves and maple syrup. Bring to a simmer, and cook on medium-low heat for 5 minutes, or until the berries are soft. Remove the sage leaves and transfer the mixture into a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour into a bowl, and stir in the chia seeds, lemon zest and juice. Set aside until the chia seeds have plumped up.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the fish onto the baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Dollop each fillet with 1 tbsp of the chia jam. Carefully spread the jam over the entire fillet and sprinkle the pecans on top. Bake the  for 15-20 minutes, or until flaky inside.

Notes:

The chia jam (step 1) can be made in advance and stored in the fridge for up to 1 week. Serve with pancakes, toast or rice cakes instead of jam!
