I didn't have a lot of time and I had invited 8 people to dinner, so I wanted to stick to recipes I knew but make it different than the fish recipe I usually make. You see when I'm home and my Dad is home I try to get him around once a week for dinner, other wise with both our lifestyles we wouldn't see each other. He is 84 and travels extensively, he popped down to Melbourne last week for a few days, the month before he drove from Qld to Victoria visiting friends along the way and the month before that I caught up with him in New Zealand.

So I had one hour to shop for foods and then another hour to prepare before my guests arrived. I went to my local fruit and vegetable shop and then the fish monger. I purchased some fresh caught snapper off the Mooloolaba coast as well as some basil, salad ingredients and green beans.

I made a meal that every single person young and old at the dinner table devoured.
