PREHEAT oven to 220⁰C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.
- Toss potatoes on prepared tray with a drizzle of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and roast until golden and crispy, about 20 minutes. Turn once during cooking.
- While potatoes are cooking, prepare salad. Trims ends from radishes and slice radishes and cucumber thinly; set aside in a medium bowl with watercress and drizzle with a little olive oil, if desired.
- In a small bowl, mix all lemon caper mayo ingredients together and set aside.
- In a second small bowl, combine breadcrumbs and lemon pepper with a drizzle of olive oil and mix well. Pat fish dry with paper towels and remove any remaining scales or bones. When potatoes have about 7 minutes cook time remaining, remove tray from oven and lay fish on tray, season with salt and rub a little olive oil over. Lightly pack crumb mixture on top of fish. Bake until cooked through, 6–7 minutes.
TO SERVE, place crispy potatoes and fish on a plate. Serve watercress salad on the side. Drizzle lemon caper mayo over fish and/or salad. Serve with a wedge of lemon to squeeze over just before eating.
