Panko Crumbed Whiting + Zesty Roasted Capsicum & Rocket Salad


Serves 2

Panko Crumbed Whiting + Zesty Roasted Capsicum & Rocket Salad

  • Roast capsicum over high heat on a naked flame until blistered and black all around
  • Remove capsicum from heat and place in a sealed plastic bag to sweat
  • Crumb the fresh whiting by dusting in flour, running through an egg mix and then in small portions through the panko crumb and set aside until the oil comes to temperature
  • In a mortar and pestle add the coriander stems, shallot white ends, rough chopped chill, oil, salt and pepper and lemon juice, pound and grind away to release the flavour and set aside.
  • In a bowl add the rocket or salad leaves, sliced shallots and coriander leaves
  • The capsicum can now be released from the bag and peeled by gently running your fingers against the skin to reveal the tasty flesh, slice as you would like and add this to the salad, keeping a little for garnish.
  • Add the crumbed whiting to the hot oil in and wait until slightly golden (approx. 1.5 minutes), being careful not to overcook it.
  • Remove the cooked whiting from the oil and let drain for a minute
  • Add salad dressing to the prepared salad mix
  • Plate the salad and place the cooked whiting on top, using the left-over capsicum slices for garnish
  • Enjoy

  • A good array of locally caught wet fish and a superb take away with outside covered seating. Was recommended to us as the best fish and chips in town and we would agree.

  • Best cooked fish and chips I have had in so long and I live in a fishing town. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection.

  • 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.

  • Best fish & chips we ever had. The Dinner Pack was just huge for two, but you just can’t stop eating! Lovely and crisp chips, and the fish was exceptional. Only draw-back was the very small decking outside, which was too crowded and hard to find a vacant table. Unless of course you take your fish & chips and eat them somewhere else. Everything was as fresh as seafood should be. Straight off the boat! Next time we’ll try the mixed seafood.
