Last weekend I was lucky to head to the Sydney Seafood School for a BBQ cooking class with some friends. The three hour class consisted of a demonstration of how to prepare the meals, us cooking the meals, then getting to sit down to a delicious lunch, prepared by us!
Our menu included prawns in chermoula, garlic butter mussels, BBQ spotted whiting in a parmesan crust, Asian style squid salad and salmon with lime mayonaise, served with a creamy dressing
I really loved the emphasis on using fresh, sustainable produce. It is better for us, and better for our environment. Fish as season’s as well. One of the recipes called for garfish, however this is currently not ‘in season’, so instead we were provided with spotted whiting instead.
I would highly recommend the class if you love seafood but either aren’t sure how to cook it, or if you’d like some new, practical recipes to add to your repertoire. I am already trying to decide which one to go to when I go back to fish school!
