  1. Boil the potatoes in a large pan for 10 mins or until tender, adding the green beans to the pan for the last 3 mins; drain. Tip the potatoes onto a large plate or tray and leave to cool completely; rinse the beans under cold water to stop them from continuing to cook.
  2. Put the garlic, basil and vinegar in a small bowl. Slowly drizzle in 1½ tbsp oil, whisking continuously to emulsify, until well combined. Put the cooled potatoes and beans, the peppers, onion and olives in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss together. Cover and set aside while you cook the fish.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high. Line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper and add the sea bass, skin side up. Drizzle with ½ tbsp oil, season with pepper, then grill for 6-8 mins until cooked through and the skin is golden and lightly crisp.
  4. Toss most of the parsley through the potato salad and season with black pepper. Divide between 4 plates and top with the fish. Scatter over the remaining parsley to serve.
