"From April 2007 edition of Australian Super Food Ideas. Suggested you serve with oven-baked fries, lemon wedges and baby spinach. I used red snapper fillets (skin off) and served with mashed potatoe and steamed vegetables. The original recipe said 4 serves but the 700 grams of red snapper fillets I had could have served 5 to 6 with sides."

Great fish coating. I used tilapia filets. May try tis coating on chicken tenders, also. Loved the pine nut flavor.
