Note To infuse olive oil, heat oil and vanilla bean in a saucepan over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until oil starts to simmer, then remove from heat and cool.

"I recently went on a weekend getaway to Bowral and stopped by Centennial Vineyards for a lovely long lunch. The barramundi with prawn salsa I had there was superb. Please ask chef Robin Murray to share the recipe."
