Method

  1. Heat the oven to 100 degrees and a deep fryer or pot of oil to 180 degrees. Fry the wafers in small batches until starting to colour a little. Spread on paper towel and season well with salt. Dry them in the oven for about 15 minutes to make them very crisp. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container until needed. They will keep well for hours.
  2. Raise the oven temperature to 190 degrees. Wash and pat the fish dry. Brush with olive oil and then season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Place slices of lemon and parsley sprigs in the cavity then bake on an oven tray for approximately 20 minutes or until done.
  4. Shred the brussel sprouts as fine as possible. In a bowl combine them with a small amount of the parmesan cheese. Dress with a few drops of fresh lemon juice and a small splash of good olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Warm a small pot on the stove slightly. Add the tablespoon of lemon juice, butter and chopped parsley. Whisk constantly until combined. Pour over fish and serve.
    Serving suggestion: Serve with fresh steamed greens and rice.
