  • Combine the couscous, spring onions, dill, coriander, horseradish sauce, olive oil and lemon juice.

  • Slice the fillet down the middle, taking care not to cut all the way through and flatten out on a clean work surface.
  • Season well with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  • Fill the fillet with the stuffing, taking care not to overfill.
  • Roll up and secure the entire fillet with kitchen string.
  • Season the outside of the fillet.
  • Heat some olive oil in a non-stick frying pan and sear the fillet on all sides.
  • Transfer to a lined baking tray and roast in a preheated 200°C oven for 20 minutes.
