Pan Seared Tuna + Warm Salad
Finely chop garlic and parsley and add to a bowl with soft butter and lemon zest
Mix and wrap before setting in the fridge
In a medium heat pan add a small knob of the butter and cubes potatoes, careful not to burn the butter. After 2 minutes add the stock and cover for 5 minutes.
Uncover the pan and turn over potatoes and push them to one side of the pan.
Add another knob of butter and sear the tuna until medium rare.
Rest the tuna on a plate and quickly add zucchini to one side of the pan and then place half cos, flat side down and turn off the heat, add halved tomatoes and let sit for 2 mins.
Plate the dish and use residual butter from the pan to dress the salad and garnish with basil leaves.
This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.
Stopped by the Fishermen’s Co-op just before the lunchtime crowd and the snapper was excellent. The crumbing was light and the oil fresh. In fact all the fish there looked great. The calamari was fresh and actually squid rings not mashed together to look like a ring. It got very busy quickly after I arrived and seating outside on the covered deck is limited so get in early or takeaway to the beach close by.
My wife and I ordered grilled swordfish. It took some time until it was done, but then we each got a nicely grilled piece about the size of a T Bone steak. Our daughter liked the salad. It might not be the place for a formal dinner but if you are hungry for fish at a reasonable price it’s certainly worth going there.
The fisherman’s co-op is your one stop shop for both a tasty seafood lunch and to purchase fresh seafood for dinner. Highly recommended the fisherman’s basket for two, it was easily enough to fill both our bellies. We then purchased a fresh kilo of prawns to take home.
