Fresh Red Snapper

The snapper was delivered to Mitchell's while I was there so it can't get any fresher than that! I pulled several bones off each breast then turned to the potatoes. Mitchell's had new potatoes that were delicious boiled and served with butter and salt. The broccoli was steamed, cooled in cold water to stop cooking and reheated in olive oil. The snapper I salted both sides then sprinkled Cajun spice mix over it and put it in a hot pan. Watch the edge of the fish and when the centre turns opaque, turn the fish over and finish cooking it.

A little fresh lemon on the Cajun spice brought the plate to life. It took only half an hour to prepare and plate this meal. I'm getting a lot better at this!
