The real beauty of this dish is the mixture of flavours, with all my recipes & in all my cooking practices I only use wholefoods for flavouring like spices, herbs, cold pressed olive oils, ginger, garlic & chili. These fundamentals are all you will ever need for a sensual journey into every meal time & will not only blow your mind but nourish your body.

  • 1 Spanish onion
  • Cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
  1. Pre heat the oven to 170.

  3. on some baking foil drizzle a little olive oil & place your fish in the middle of the foil. Drizzle a little olive oil over the fillet of fish, place about 4 pieces of the ginger & coriander atop of the fish.
  4. Cut your lime in half & squeeze one half of the lime over the fish as the juices will infuse with the fish whilst cooking and steam the fish. Place in the oven & bake for 15-18mins depending on oven.
  5. In a large bowl place your washed baby spinach, wild rocket, fresh kale & the rest of your roughly torn up parsley & coriander.
  6. dice up your cucumber into bight size pieces along with your Spanish onion and sprinkle over the super greens.

  8. Squeeze the left over half of lime over the salad, drizzle a little olive oil over the salad & take your fish out of the oven. Let the fish sit for a few minutes.

  10. place your fish on top of the salad & pour the juices from the parcel over the salad.

Sustainable Fishing & Choosing The Right Fish To Eat.

Industrial fishing is having a devastating effect on tuna stocks and endangered marine life around the world. With so many caned fish brands on the market it’s hard to know who is following sustainable fishing practises. As per an article I read on the Greenpeace website, see below who was ranked the best brand to buy if you are going to purchase canned fish over fresh fish.
Ranking: 1 (Most Sustainable) and 10 (Least Sustainable).
  1. Greenseas
  2. Coles
  3. Aldi
  4. Woolworths
  5.  Safcol
  6. Paramount
  7. John West
  8. Sole Mare
  9. IGA, Franklins & Spar
  10. Sirena
When purchasing fish always buy fresh small reef fish from your local fish monger, making sure that your fresh fish has come from sustainable fishing practices & caught within Australian/Local waters. Smaller fish caught in shallow, coastal & warm waters are more advantageous as they are less likely to contain heavy metals like Mercury. Fish that harvested & caught in Deep seas should be avoided.
Fish to include:
  1. Coral Trout
  2. Bream
  3. Salmon
  4. Sweetlip
  5. Whiting
  6. Flathead
  7. Sardines/Herring/Anchovy
  8. Perch
  9. Snapper
  10. Shellfish

Omega 3,6 & 9


Over time fats have been misconceived as being bad for our health, building a fear of the sheer sight of the word FAT & has made society avoid them in their daily diet at all costs. Did you know? Some fats like EFA’S e.g. Essential Fatty Acids are actually good for the body & imperative in our daily diet as our good fats protect & coat every cell in our body hence needing them on a daily basis. Fats like our Omega 3, 6, 9 are essential in our every diet. Fats are a vital source of energy & also are responsible for the transport of fat soluble vitamins around the body like vitamins A, D, E, K & some antioxidants.

The Omega 3, 6 and 9 groups all contain essential fatty acids necessary for good health. Omega fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats, they are healthier than saturated fats and have many metabolic functions.
Omega fatty acids may be helpful in a number of conditions such as, rheumatoid arthritis, depression and inflammation. They are necessary for growth and development, especially in the development of nervous tissue, cognitive function and emotional health. Below are some health benefits associated with our good fats.

  • Nervous System – Fats compose the material that insulates and protects the nerves, isolating electrical impulses and speeding their transmission. Hence being essential for a balanced nervous system.
  •  Lungs – Lung surfactant, which requires a high concentration of saturated fats, enables the lungs to work and keeps them from collapsing. Strong lung function means more fresh oxygen pumping around the body.
  • Organs – Fats cushion and protect our internal organs from damage & oxidative stress.
  • Immune System – Fats ease inflammation, helping your metabolism and immune system stay healthy and functioning. Not to mention keeping you warm.
