I scored in my work 'secret santa' this year with a cook book!!! Gordon Ramsay's World Kitchen - sounds like my sort of recipes hey :)
Well my daughter has chosen the first recipe that we should cook, Stuffed Red Mullet. It looked delicious but Red Mullet is a Mediterranean fish and so we used snapper.
Olives, anchovies, sundried tomatoes and garlic are pureed.
The potatoes I parcooked before tossing in warm duck fat and baking with rosemary, whole garlic cloves and lemon wedges.
The snapper was seasoned and stuffed with the delicious puree.
Then baked for 20 minutes.
Served with the crisp and incredibly tasty potatoes.
The soft moist fish was perfect with the rich olive puree.
After eating this meal I was looking at Australia's Sustainable Seafood guide. Did you know that snapper is not a better choice when it comes to seafood?
In the muppy household we try to make sensible ethical and environmental choices.
So from now on I am going to check before buying my seafood that I am making an appropriate choice by looking up this guide and chatting to my local fish monger.
