1. Scale and gut the zander, and remove the gills.

Wash the fish thoroughly under running water, then dry with a napkin.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the mayonnaise, juice of half a lemon, freshly ground black pepper, and salt.

Spread the mayonnaise mix graciously over the zander (inside and out); place the fish on a baking tray and leave for 30-40 minutes.

3. Fry the potatoes with the onion in hot vegetable oil until a light brown crust forms.

4. Put the fried potato and onion on the baking tray with the zander and add a little water.

5. Bake zander at 150°C for 30-45 minutes, basting the fish regularly with its own juices.

6. Decorate the zander with a criss-cross pattern of mayonnaise, as well as greens and tomato segments.
