Snapper and bean stir fry

Bring your greens alive by adding some fresh white fish. This quick and easy fish dish is nutritious and light, full of flavour and perfect for any occasion. It’s lovely to keep it fresh by not overcooking the beans, and adding some fresh herbs right at the end.

SERVES: 4 PREP TIME: 15 mins COOK TIME: 25 mins


  • 4 skinned snapper fillets, diced
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 8 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • ½ long red chilli, finely chopped
  • ½ cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley

  1. Lightly pepper the snapper and fry in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until golden, placing to one side.
