Lebanese-style snapper

"This dish is Lebanese-peasant done fancy with all the peasant-style flavours you'll find in Lebanese cooking, but with a beautiful piece of fish added," says Bacash. "The trick to not overcooking fish is to be aware that it cooks from the outside inwards and the centre should only cook until it's warm, not hot. If it gets hot in the middle, it will become overcooked from the residual heat. It takes a little practise getting to know this - be conscious of the inside of the fish and not the outside. Until you get it right, you can always get a little paring knife and peek inside the flesh when you think it's ready; it won't damage it too much."

You'll need

To serve: mixed roast nuts and dried fruit, such as pistachios, almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, apricots, figs and whole prunes   Moscatel jelly 375 ml moscatel (see note) 2 gelatine leaves (titanium strength), soaked in cold water   Crema Catalana 1 litre (4 cups) milk 35 gm cornflour 7 egg yolks (from 60gm eggs) 200 gm caster sugar 1 lemon, finely grated rind only 1 cinnamon quill

Method

  • 01
  • For moscatel jelly, bring moscatel to the boil in a saucepan over high heat. Squeeze excess water from gelatine and add to pan. Remove from heat, stir to dissolve gelatine and pass through a fine sieve. Cool to room temperature, then divide between four 1-cup capacity serving glasses. Refrigerate until softly set (3-4 hours).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile for crema Catalana, combine 100ml milk with cornflour in a heatproof bowl. Stir to dissolve, add yolks, whisking to combine, and set aside. Combine remaining milk, sugar, lemon rind and cinnamon in a saucepan and bring to the boil over high heat. Pour over egg mixture, then return to pan and cook over low-medium heat, stirring continuously until mixture thickens (2-4 minutes). Pass through a fine sieve into a bowl, cool, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
  • 03
  • To serve, top moscatel jelly with crema Catalana, scatter dried fruit and nuts over and around and serve immediately.
Note Moscatel is a sweet wine made from muscat grapes, available from good liquor stores. If unavailable, substitute with another sweet muscat wine, such as moscato.

This trifle-style crema Catalana has an assortment of dry roasted nuts and is served with sweet wine. It is very common to find this on the menu in restaurants nowadays.
