This is another super simple grilled fish recipe which is super flavoursome and quick to make. I am lucky to have a husband that loves fishing and so when he comes home with a catch, I never know what to expect in terms of the type of fish, but I know we will cook up a feast - be it an soft flesh fish that goes well as a whole cooked fish in the oven or a more firm fish that can be cooked on the barbecue or on the skillet. This week he caught some Flathead - an Australian white fish that has a lovely firm texture and responds well to a skillet!


  • Flat head (or other white firm fish cut into medium sized pieces)

  • Olive oil

  • Spices - I used L'Alchimiste Persian Blend Spices, but you can use any mix that takes your imagination!


Heat up the skillet to a high temperature (I like to use a 'grilling' skillet to give the black lines across the fish flesh), drizzle briefly with just enough olive oil so the fish will not stick to the pan. Roll the fish in your favourite spices and fry up on the pan on both sides till cooked through. Make sure you do not overcook fish as it can go very dry. Best to use a hot pan and cook it in high heat for a short time (this keeps the flesh nice and moist on the inside and firm on the outside). Enjoy with some steamed greens, a salad and some home made Aioli sauce!
