  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Put the parsnips on a baking tray lined with nonstick baking paper. Scatter over the rosemary, season and drizzle with the oil. Toss well to coat, then roast for 30 mins.
  2. After 10 mins, put the fish on a second lined baking tray and bake on the shelf below the parsnips for 20 mins.
  3. Melt the butter in a lidded saucepan over a medium heat. Add the peas; cover and cook for 4-5 mins until cooked. Remove from the heat, then roughly mash. Add the vinegar and season to taste. Serve with the fish and parsnip chips.

Tip: Use whatever root veg you have for the mash – try sweet potato, carrot or swede.
