Fresh fish needs very little done to it; season it well and cook it however you like. Frying and steaming are popular choices, but roasting it in the oven for a few minutes is fabulous, too.
400g snapper fillets
¼ cup olive oil
Roasted pepper mayonnaise
½ cup roasted red capsicum in olive oil, drained
½ cup Japanese mayonnaise
1 garlic clove
1. Heat your oven to 180C fan-forced (200C conventional). Cut the snapper fillets into slices about 5cm wide and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for about 8 minutes, until the snapper slices are just cooked (pinch them – they should feel tender).
2. While the snapper is cooking, combine the capsicum, mayonnaise and garlic in a small food processor and blend until smooth. You can also cut it by hand if you don't mind it a little chunkier. Serve the snapper with the mayonnaise.
