One Pan Speltotto with Poached Fish
Servings: 2 servings
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time30 mins
Total Time35 mins


  • Glug light olive - or cooking oil
  • 1 Small onion or stick or celery finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic - finely chopped
  • 110 g / 4oz / ½ cup pearled spelt
  • 250 ml / ½ pint / 1 cup vegetable stock
  • Glug white wine - optional
  • 1 heaped tsp brown miso
  • 1 tbs soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 handful spinach or kale - thick stalks removed
  • 1 large or 2 small fillets of fish
  • 1 tsp dried seaweed sprinkles - I used nori flakes, or Clearspring’s sea salad
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the oil in a large non stick frying pan and fry the onion and garlic until just starting to go golden. Add the spelt and fry for another minute.
  • Add the stock and wine (if using) and stir well. Allow to gently simmer for about 15 mins stirring from time to time, and adding more stock if needed.
  • When the spelt is nearly done, but still al dente, stir in the miso, soy sauce. Add the spinach or kale and gently fold it in so it wilts.
  • Make a well in the middle of the spelt mixture and lay the fish fillets into it. Gently cook for 5 minutes to poach the fish, adding more stock if needed, flip the fish over and cook until done, the halibut fillet took about 15 minutes in total. Add a generous squeeze of lemon, sprinkle the seaweed flakes over and serve immediately.
