Bitacora’s veal with goat’s cheese

1 Mix all the ingredients for the veal together and marinate for at least 2 hours and up to 24.
2 When ready to cook, remove the veal from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Heat a non-stick saucepan on a medium-high heat, add a lug of olive oil and the veal, browning the veal on all sides. Add the reserved marinade and continue cooking for 6–8 minutes – veal should be served slightly pink on the inside. When the veal is ready, tip onto 2 serving plates, top each with a slice of goat’s cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, serve with fresh crusty bread or, even better, pa amb tomàquet.

Fantastic tomato and fennel salad with flaked barbecued fish

Mix together a good lug of extra virgin olive oil, a nice squeeze of lemon juice and a pinch of salt and pepper. Drizzle this all over the fish then pat on the chopped marjoram or oregano. Put your fillets on the hottest part of the grill (make sure your grill is really clean to prevent the fish from sticking).

If your fillets are 2cm thick, they’ll only need about 2 minutes cooking time. If the fish breaks up, don’t worry as you’ll be flaking it up later anyway. If it still has the skin on, cook it skin-side down as it’s less likely to stick. Once cooked, remove to a warm plate.

To make the salad, finely slice the tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Arrange on your plates. Finely slice your fennel bulb and dress it in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper then scatter over your tomatoes. Finally, spoon over your fish, flaking it as you go. Scatter over your reserved fennel tops, drizzle with the balsamic vinegar and scatter with chilli, if using, to finish.
