Although the schnapper isn't quite so happy about it. Inspired by fellow blogger Stickyfingers' dish at The Bloggers Banquet, I thought I would turn Furry's catch into something of the same ilk. Problem #1, I have no internet access at Chez Fur. I vaguely remember her saying something about porcinis and mandarin peel, but I'm in Dromana in peak terrorist season, so my chances of getting porcinis are about, uh. NONE.
So here's what I did. Par boiled some arborrio rice in fish stock (Thank godd for the freezer and last year's schnapper heads). Added some galangal and lemon juice. poured the whole shebang into an oven dish, layed on some more galangal and lemongrass.
Scored a 5kgs schnapper both sides and layed it on the bed of "risotto".
Bunged some lemon, galangal, ginger in the cavity, covered with some more lemongrass and a slurp of soy,
wrapped in foil and cooked in the outdoor oven for 1.5 hours.
