Baked seafood with coriander Chimichurri
A delicious baked seafood dinner served with a zesty, sweet and sour, slightly spicy chimichurri busrting with coriander flavours. The sauce also goes well with steak and keeps in the fridge for a couple of days.
• 2 swordfish steaks
• 2 baby octopuses
• 1 squid
• 12 raw peeled prawns
• 8 scallops
• Olive oil
• 1 lime
• 3 sprigs coriander
• 1 red long chilli
• 2 small garlic cloves
• 2 tsp fish sauce
• 4 tsp olive oil
• 1 tsp brown sugar
• Juice of 1/2 lime
Preheat oven to 180C and place the rack on the top shelf. Dice swordfish steaks into bite-sized pieces. Cut octopuses into quarters, slice and score squid. Drizzle the fish and seafood with a teaspoon of olive oil each, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cut lime in half. Line a large baking dish with baking paper. Arrange seafood and the lime cut-side up in the tray. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and the lime is lightly caramelised.
Meanwhile, make the chimichurri. Roughly tear coriander and deseed chilli. Peel garlic. Place all ingredients in a jog and process using a stick blender for a chunky sauce consistency.
To serve transfer seafood and lime onto a serving platter, drizzle with chimichurri – serve extra on the side.
Ask your fish monger to clean the squid and octopus for you when purchasing.
