Snapper, cabbage and roast macadamia salad

all details

Fish names can be very confusing. The snapper, for instance, is not really a snapper but a bream and, depending where you live on Australia's coast, it is sometimes referred to as red bream or pink snapper.

Ingredients

  • 600g snapper fillet, scaled but skin left on
  • 1/4 savoy cabbage
  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 12 ripe cherry tomatoes, washed and quartered
  • 100g macadamia pieces
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (for frying)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Method

Prepare the snapper fillets by removing any scales left on by the fishmonger. Cut each fillet down both sides of the central backbone line, eliminating any bones and leaving two boneless pieces per fillet. Cut these into large, bite-sized pieces and refrigerate. Slice the cabbage as thinly as possible and place in a bowl with the tomatoes, olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and toss. Leave it for at least half an hour, tossing occasionally. Place the macadamia pieces in a dry frypan and place over medium heat, stirring or tossing, until they are light golden-brown. Add to the cabbage and toss. Spoon the cabbage onto serving plates. Heat the olive oil for frying in a large skillet or on the hotplate of a barbecue. Sprinkle the snapper pieces with some salt and fry them quickly at high heat until they are just cooked. Distribute the pieces amongst the plates and serve immediately.
