Pan fried snook with coconut broth. The star of this dish, snook fillets, are pan fried with anchovy butter to make flavor-packed meal for your family. The coconut broth is made with plenty of flavorful ingredients – think coconut milk, lemon grass and fish sauce simmered over low heat to create lip-smacking sauce. With a side of sauteed bok choy and soba noodles, this dish makes for a healthy lunch or dinner.
Same Dish New Fish, an initiative from PIRSA (Primary Industries and Regions South Australia) focuses on incorporating sustainable fish species into our diet and protecting under pressure species in South Australian waters. Cooking with seafood is fun, easy, and best of all, they are rich in nutrients and incredibly delicious. So, why wait? Grab your apron and join me to cook this delicious pan fried snook with Coconut Broth.
Simply put, it’s butter flavored with anchovies, garlic, parsley and a dash of lemon juice. All you need to do is combine all the ingredients together, scoop it on to a cling film, roll into a cylinder, tie the ends, and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Although I’ve used snook in this recipe, feel free to substitute it with mulloway. To fry the snook, heat a little anchovy butter in a pan, add snook, and fry both sides. Snook cooks super quick, it just needs a couple of minutes on each side.
This super flavorful broth is one of the key elements in this recipe. Combine together coconut milk, lemongrass, garlic, chicken stock, fish sauce and chilies in a saucepan, bring to boil, and simmer for about 20 minutes. Then strain and discard the solids. Done!
How to serve:
I like to serve this pan fried snook with a side of sautéed bok choy and soba noodles. It’s my favorite way to add more greens to this dish. Sautéing bok choy is super simple. Make sure you trim the ends and separate the stalks before you sauté them. Heat up some ginger and garlic in a little oil, add bok choy, season, and cook for about 5 minutes or until the stalks are tender and leaves are wilted.
And finally, cook some soba noodles to go with the pan fried snook. So delicious!
