E1 by Olivia Barry - this was Olivia's fish dish on the South West heat on Great British Menu.

When having my first son in Whitechapel London, The majority of my midwives were of Indian descent and to celebrate these midwives who helped me through the experience, I have chosen to create a fish dish with curried elements.
