Cut the kohlrabi and the 2 potatoes into small pieces, and cook them in a pot with boiling water until tender (approximately 10-15 minutes). Season them with salt and pepper and mash them all together until smooth.

Cover the sea bream fillets with grated cheese and hazelnuts and bake them skin-side down.

Cook the purple potato and cut it into small cubes, then cook the peas. Blanch the fennel and marinate it with orange juice, lemon juice and white pepper.

Warm up the prawns just before serving.

Garnish with chive oil and prawn sauce.
