Instructions
To make the snapper:
  1. You will need a clay pot or a wide flat ovenproof dish. Toss the fish with the spice mix, three-quarters of the parsley leaves and the butter and place in the clay pot or dish. Leave to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 210°C (410°F/Gas 6-7).
  3. Season the fish generously with salt, top with the lemon slices and drizzle with the olive oil. Cover with foil or a lid and roast for 20 minutes. Remove the cover and return to the oven for 5 minutes or until fish is just cooked through.
  1. Meanwhile, to make the burghul pilaf, melt the butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the noodles and toss, then add the burghul and cook in the butter for a minute. Add 1 cup of the water and stir. Cover with a lid, turn the heat down and cook for 5 minutes until the burghul softens and the water is absorbed. Add the remaining water, stir, cover with the lid and cook for a few minutes until the water is absorbed. If the burghul is not cooked once all the water has been absorbed, add a little more water and steam until just cooked. Add the parsley and season with salt.
  2. Garnish the fish with the remaining parsley and serve with burghul pilaf and the chilli on the side.

    I found this a bit plain and thought maybe next time, I’d also bake without the lid

Many of you know I have been on the growing 'don't buy Tassie salmon' bandwagon since reading Richard Flanagan's book Toxic about a year ago. It was shocking to see the state of the industry, and even more shocking that we thought we were eating something that was really good for us. This just-released video has strengthened my resolve (which I have to admit was waning as I am not sure how much impact we have all had) to continue and to spread the word.

Please share this post, or any post supporting this stand, it is such an important message - especially for those of us who used to love eating Tassie salmon.

And sadly this also applies to all the smoked salmon from Tassie including @huonsalmon which we all used to love.

Click on the link in our profile for the original @neighbours_of_fish_farming video. 🙏🏻 @joostbakker for posting the video, that's where I first saw it.

I have been buying NZ king salmon @regalsalmonnz @orakingsalmon and @alpinesalmon (Mt Cook, NZ, can buy at @harrisfarmmarkets) and exploring many other fish options. Check out @goodfishproject for an excellent guide to what we should be buying here in Aus.

We also need to rally the big buyers in Aus - @colessupermarkets @woolworths_au to stop buying farmed Tassie salmon until the industry has been cleaned up.

(btw when we were in beautiful Tassie last year, not one restaurant we went to served salmon. Doesn't that say something?)
