Crispy Skinned Barramundi with Apple & Fennel Remoulade and Toasted Hazelnuts

With the silly season thrust upon us it can be difficult to maintain a bit of a healthy eating pattern….within reason of course…I’m not a mad woman and can absolutely justify the scoffing of scorched almonds as an ode to Christmas. This is an easy dish, and super fast if you have a food processor. … Continue reading

Healthy Crumbed Fish & Chips
