Grilled King Threadfin
An excellent local fish to serve simply grilled at home is King Threadfin Salmon. When using thicker fillets it is best done in an oven friendly pan. King Threadfin is a mild flavoured white flesh with soft texture ideal for introducing kids or newcomers to eating fish. The following method can be used with all fish, if using thin fillets you may not need to involve the oven. One thing to remember is to not play around or turn fish to much while cooking. Let it cook through and turn once.
  • An oven friendly pan
  • A dollop of butter
  • A splash of olive oil (The butter is for flavour and the oil is for heat)
  • A lemon
  • Sea Salt and Ground Pepper
  • Some nice fillets of King Threadfin

Pre heat oven to 200. Heat oil and butter in pan until foaming. Sear fillets until you get a nice brown caramelization (2 mins each side). During this process give them a good squeeze of lemon and season with salt and pepper, leave lemon wedges in pan. Finish off in oven until fish is cooked, time will depend on thickness of fillet. When serving use the roasted lemon pieces for a burst of citrus flavour. Enjoy with your favourite vegies or salad.
