  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Heat the oil in a large pan, then cook the onion and rosemary with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes, or until softened.
  2. Put the fish, skin-side down, in a pan with the milk, bay leaf and nutmeg. Gently bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 4 minutes.
  3. Transfer the fish to a plate with a slotted spoon, reserving 75ml (3f oz) poaching liquid. Flake the fish and discard the skin.
  4. Rub a small baking dish with the garlic. Add a layer of celeriac, followed by a layer of fish and the onion mixture; season with black pepper. Repeat until the ingredients are used up, finishing with a layer of celeriac.

  6. Remove the foil and increase the heat to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Bake for 15 minutes more, or until golden. Serve with salad.
