Meanwhile, heat some oil in a saucepan on a medium heat and add the onion, garlic and chilli flakes. Cook for 7 minutes until soft.

Add the chopped tomatoes and ¼ can of water and cook for 10 minutes or until thickened then stir through the capers.

Steam the kale for 5 mins until tender. Add the butter and a squeeze of lemon on top and season with salt and pepper.

While the kale is steaming, heat some oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Dry the sea bass with a paper towel and then season with salt, pepper and chilli flakes.

Place skin side down in the pan for 5 minutes until the fish is cooked almost fully. Turn and cook for another 2 minutes to finish cooking and to brown off the meat of the fish slightly.
