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

  • 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.

  • Service at the Co-Op is friendly and helpful and the fish is MAGNIFICENTLY FRESH. If you have a special occasion coming up, the cooked lobster is absolutely delicious.

  • We came to buy a selection of fish and seafood for a BBQ later that day. The choice was first class, and the service good. The fish was very fresh, and we enjoyed the snapper cutlets, the marlin steak and the prawns. Delicious!

  • 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.
