Spiced Fish with Basmati Rice.

This dish is so simple to prepare my daughter the “starving artist” tells me she “whips this dish weekly!”… Mmmm?

Smoked Salmon with Capers and Lemon

Easy and delicious!

Thai Yellow Fish Curry with Vegetables

I used Mulloway (jewfish) for this recipe, I buy the tail end as there are very few bones, Ling is also a good option! If your in doubt talk to your fish monger, tell him what your cooking and he will point you in the right direction.

Garlic Prawns with a Proscuitto and Dill Crumb

Lovely little dish is this one… the only thing I ask of you is to get the freshest prawns you can!

Crumbed Fish with Italian Tomato Salsa

I used Mulloway fish for this recipe, also known as Jewfish it goes back well with the tomato salsa as it is a mild tasting fish. Excuse the pun, but once you eat Mulloway you will be hooked! Alternatives are Bream or Barramundi. I always buy the tail end as there are very few, if any, bones.

Chilli Prawn Tartlets

This is a great party stand-by! You can make the tartlets in advance and store in an airtight container. The filling can be made the day before.

Prawn Pate

This is truly a favourite of mine! The flavours of the pate go back beautifully with champagne or a Hunter Valley semillon. And it’s a lovely way to get the party started!

Salmon Patties with Lime Chilli Dressing

This simple salad goes back so well with the salmon patties, it really is a funky little dish!

Spanish Style Seafood Stew

When we think of a stew we think of winter but this dish covers all seasons, I used prawns and fish but you can also add mussels.
So make sure you have fresh crusty bread for the finale,as this dish requires serious mopping.
