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."

Method

  • 01
  • For creamed potatoes, place potatoes in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to the boil and cook for 15 minutes or until very tender. Drain and peel, then return to pan and mash with a potato masher or pass through a potato ricer. Add butter and cream, stir to combine and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  • Working with one steak at a time, place between two sheets of plastic wrap and, using the flat side of a meat mallet, gently pound until ½cm thick. Heat half the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Cook 2 steaks at a time for 2 minutes or until browned, then turn, add half the garlic and cook for 1 minute or until garlic is softened. Add half the brandy (be careful as it may flame) and cook for 2 minutes or until reduced by half. Add half the Worcestershire sauce, half the butter and half the cream, then stir through half the chopped parsley. Repeat with remaining ingredient halves.
  • 03
  • Meanwhile, place beans and carrots in a steamer or boil in salted water for 5 minutes until tender. Drain, toss with butter and season to taste.
  • 04
  • Serve steak on top of creamed potatoes, scattered with chopped parsley, and with steamed vegetables passed separately.
