To prepare the fish, place the slices of bread onto a chopping board and place a piece of fish on top of each slice. Cut the slices of bread to the shape of the fillets, then cut each slice of bread into neat croutons
4 slices of white bread
4 halibut fillets, skinned
Lightly beat the egg white and brush it onto the side of the fish that will be stuck to the bread. Stick the croutons to the fish and carefully turn over
1 egg white
Place the crusted fish portions onto a non-stick tray and brush generously with the melted butter. Season and place in the fridge to set for 30-60 minutes
50g of butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 150°C/gas mark 2
Peel and quarter the tomatoes and place on a suitably-sized tray. Sprinkle with olive oil, salt, sugar and dill and cook in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove and keep warm
4 plum tomatoes, large
1 sprig of dill, small, chopped
extra virgin olive oil
Shuck the oysters, pat dry and set aside. Place the lager in a mixing bowl and quickly whisk in enough flour to make a light batter
4 rock oysters, large
200ml of lager beer, cold
Place the halibut under a medium-heated grill and cook until the bread is golden and crispy, and the fish is just pink inside. Allow to rest somewhere warm
For the beurre blanc, bring the shallots, white wine vinegar and white wine to the boil in a non-reactive saucepan. Continue to boil until the volume of liquid has reduced to 1 tablespoon
1 banana shallot, finely diced
1/2 tbsp of white wine vinegar
2 tbsp of white wine
Add the cold water and return the mixture to the boil. Boil again until only 1 tablespoon of liquid remains in the pan
1/2 tbsp of ice cold water
Reduce the heat to low and whisk in the butter, a cube at a time, waiting until each cube has melted before adding the next
110g of butter, chilled
Remove from the heat and continue to whisk until the sauce is pale and thick. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper
Strain the sauce through a sieve into a clean bowl and set aside at room temperature until required (do not refrigerate or the sauce will split)
Cook the asparagus in salted boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain and season. Lightly flour the oysters and dip in the batter. Deep-fry at 180°C until golden and crisp, then drain and season
20 asparagus spears
Using a stick blender, blitz the beurre blanc until aerated and foamy
Squeeze some lemon juice onto the fish and place onto warm plates with the asparagus, tomatoes and oyster beignets. Finish with the lightly foamed beurre blanc and serve immediately
