Place a large pan over a medium heat with a dash of the oil, then add the cinnamon stick, onion and garlic and sweat down for 5 minutes until starting to soften. Add the green pepper and cook for another 5 minutes, then add the ground spices and cook out for a further couple of minutes


Preheat the oven to 190ºC/gas mark 6


Add the white wine to the pan and reduce by half. Then add in the sliced potatoes, the olives with the brine, the preserved lemons, bay leaf and vegetable stock and simmer for around 8 minutes – the potatoes should be starting to soften slightly but not cooked through


Transfer the potato mixture to a large oven-proof tray, and place the sea bream on top. Drizzle the bream with a little oil and season with salt then bake for 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender, and the bream is starting to crisp up
