Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Blend the coriander (cilantro), onions, garlic, lemon rind and juice, salt, pepper and enough of the olive oil to make a paste.
  3. Drizzle the bottom of the pan with a little olive oil. Cut a few slashes into the fish. Put the butter into the belly of the fish, then cover the outside all over with the paste, pushing it into the slits. Scatter the olives over the fish and roast uncovered for 20 minutes,  then add the parsley and roast for 5 more minutes or until the flesh comes away from the bone. Rest for 15 minutes loosely covered with foil.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil to serve.
  5. Note: If the fish is bigger than 2 kg, we suggest the rule of 10 minutes cooking time for every kg.

      Hi Lee,
      You could try it with flat leaf parsley instead of the coriander.
      Cheers

Feeling any chiffon cake vibes at your place?

We say it in the book and we’re going to say it again - this is one of the best cakes we have ever eaten.

We made it yesterday and we can confirm that it’s true. It’s just unbelievable and in these trying times, it offers such comfort to cut a huge frosting-slathered slice and just take a huge bite.
Follow our instastories to see it made step by step. It also helps to make a batch of pumpkin purée and freeze in exactly the right amount for the cake.

You can find this brilliant pumpkin chiffon recipe in Now For Something Sweet on p. 118.

We think it’s worth buying the book for this recipe alone. And we also have a ‘how to chiffon’ guide with pics and instructions to help you master the chiffon!

Grab your copy through @booktopiabooks or @amazonaustralia .

If you’re in Sydney eastern subs, you can also find it at the @wizo.nsw office or Berkelouw Rose Bay who will happily deliver.

Need Passover menu guidance?⁠

Look no further.⁠

Simply click on the link in our profile, and then click on the picture of this fabulous cake and it will take you right there.⁠

(and for those who will ask, this is a pic from our new book of Leah Koenig's INCREDIBLE Passover Pear Cake, in fact it may be worth buying the book for this recipe alone...)⁠

And there is still plenty of time to get the book before Pesach - check out our website, @booktopiabooks or @amazonau⁠
