Aside from snapper, we also have a wide range of fish in our online store.



  • Large whole Snapper
  • tbs sesame oil x 1
  • 1 large brown onion, diced
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • cup dry white wine
  • 4 tbs unsalted butter
  • 6cm of ginger, grated
  • large chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 pinch of salt
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • ½ cup coriander, chopped finely.



Step 1

Preheat the oven to 200 degree celcius and prepare a baking tray with parchment paper.

Step 2

Heat the sesame oil in a medium pan on medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring constantly for 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 1 minute.

Step 3

Pour in the white wine and let simmer until the alcoholic smell has evaporated (roughly 2-3 minutes). Add in the butter, ginger, chilli and salt, and let simmer for 5 minutes. This will help the onion mixture to thicken.

Step 4

Lay the snapper on the parchment paper. Remove the onion mixture from the heat and place half within the stomach cavity of the fish. Place the remaining over the fish, spreading evenly.

Step 5

Pour over the lemon juice and cover with Snapper and tray with foil. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for a remaining 20-25 minutes (or until crispy).

Step 6

Serve covered with fresh coriander, with a light green salad and glass of dry white! Enjoy!
