You’ll need:

1 cup coriander leaves

500g sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into about 2 cm pieces

1 ½ tbsp extra virgin olive oil

4 or 5 snapper fillets (about 150g each)

1 small red onion, finely sliced into rings

300g green beans, blanched and trimmed

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

75g toasted macadamias

1 small clove of garlic chopped coarsely

A tbsp of water


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/200C fan-forced and place baking paper on the baking tray. Next, place all the potatoes on this baking tray and drizzle a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Season and roast, stirring halfway, for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes turn golden and tender.
  2. For the creamy pesto sauce, process the garlic, coriander, half a tablespoon of lime juice, and macadamias in a mixer until you get a smooth paste. Season.

  4. Pour the remaining olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium flame. Pat dry the skin of the snapper with a paper towel and season. Cook the snapper-skin side down- until crisp, for about 2 minutes. Flip and cook for a minute or two or until it is cooked through. Place the snapper in a plate to cool.
  5. Add a tablespoon of pesto, green beans, and sweet potatoes to the onion mixture. Give it a light toss before dividing among the serving plates. Top each of the plates with a spoonful of pesto and a piece of snapper. Garnish it with coriander leaves and serve.

1 ½ pounds salmon fillet, slit crosswise into 4 neat portions

3 tbsp olive oil

1 medium-sized red onion, thinly sliced in half rings
