  • ¼ cup fresh dill

Beetroot Puree

  • 2 medium beetroots, cooked
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp wasabi powder (optional)
  • 1 garlic glove, crushed
  • himalayan sea salt and black pepper

Method | Serves 2

Blend the beetroot puree ingredients together and season to taste.
Heat coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan.
Squeeze lemon juice over snapper fillets, the rub with salt, lemon zest, fennel seeds and half the dill.
Add fish to the pan, cooking for 4 mins on each side\*
Serve puree between two bowls, with 1/2 cup salad and a lemon wedge.
Top with snapper and serve with remaining dill.


  • Remember fish will continue to cook out of the pan. Cook to 90%, then remove to a plate to ensure fish is not overcooked.
  • Test with a fork – ensuring the middle of the fish flakes easily.
  • This recipe would also be delicious with tuna, salmon or basa fillets. Just be sure to opt for sustainably caught fish.
