Flathead Carpaccio


Flathead Carpaccio 

is one of my favourite recipes from Pete’s cookbook (Fish) and I have slightly altered it. Thanks Pete!

200 g flathead fillet (boneless and skinless)….    slice very thinly (on an angle) and lay it out on a platter. Season with

ground white pepper and

4 tablespoons finely sliced fresh ginger….         Then drizzle with

4 tablespoons of grape seed oil                         to coat the fish lightly. Put the platter in the oven (150 degree C, preheated), but

                                                                           only for 2-3 min (fish still rare). In the meantime prepare the coriander:

1 bunch of coriander, leaves, stalks and roots: Finely chop the roots (1 tsp) and the stalks (1 tsp). Keep leaves whole for after.

                                                                           Prepare the dressing: Heat

2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce

3 tablespoons mirin

100 ml chicken stock                                          until simmering, then add:

1/2 garlic clove minced

1 tsp chopped chilli and the coriander roots.     Cut 

1 rasher of bacon into very thin strips and add together with coriander stalks.

                                                                           Drizzle this warm dressing over the fish and finally top with

2 spring onions, finely sliced

grated orange zest of 1 orange

2 tablespoons chives (snipped) 

and seaweed strips (if you like)

  – Great starter for 4 –

I have worked for 14 years with Dyslexic and Asperger geniuses one-on-one, founded Sydney Dyslexia and Autism Sydney, worked in Mosman and at a beach retreat at the Entrance and wrote three books on Dyslexia ('the Right Brain for the Right Time', 'Nurturing the Secret Garden' and 'Learning your Times Tables in Three Bold Steps'). I believe these children and adults have a great gift and the ability to become leaders in their field. But I have also found that a proper diet as well as educating and working together with parents, friends and teachers matters even more. I am now working with small groups at the Entrance Beach Retreat, helping dyslexic adults fulfill their professional dreams and parents to help develop and nurture their child's potential.
