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

  • This was fish and chips done to perfection. Thick crunchy fish cocktails, calamari rings, prawn cutlets and chips were all fantastic.

    “Very best fish and chips ever”

  • 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.

  • 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.

    “Excellent fish”

  • Heaps of choice of fresh fish to cook at home. We got the $35 family basket – nice variety, plenty to eat, fast service, great taste. A good way to end a day out in the town before heading home again.

    “Great location, great fish. great choice”
