  1. Dredge the fish fillets in the flour, shaking off any excess.

  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan until hot, add the vegetable oil and fry the fish fillets for 3-4 minutes, or until golden-brown. Carefully flip the fish over and fry for a further 1-2 minutes, or until golden-brown all over and just cooked through (the fish should be opaque all the way through).

  3. Add the butterbeans and chorizo to the pan, add the stock and cook for 1-2 minutes to heat through.

  4. Add the spinach, goats' cheese and butter to the pan and cook until the cheese is melted.

  5. To serve, place a fish fillet each into four shallow serving bowls and spoon the butterbeans, chorizo, spinach and goats' cheese mixture around. Serve with some crusty bread.
