Aubergine's mixed fish with Provencale vegetables, pesto & aioli


  • To make aioli, blend the egg yolks, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and mustard in a food processor. Then drizzle in up to 1 cup vegetable oil while the motor is running until it reaches a creamy consistency. Season and set aside.
  • Sprinkle the fish with a little salt and panfry in a thin layer of vegetable oil until crispy on the outside.
  • When the fish is almost ready, briefly cook the scallops in the same pan. 
  • While the fish is cooking, heat a little oil in another non-stick pan and gently saute the eggplant, red onion and zucchini until golden brown on both sides. Remove the vegies, place on top of the fish and squeeze a little lemon juice over.
  • Then melt the butter in the pan and briefly cook the spinach with a little seasonings.
  • To serve, place a little spinach in the centre of individual plates, top with a few onion rounds and a red emperor fillet. Then layer with the eggplant, snapper and zucchini. Place a dollop of aioli on top with the capsicum, scatter scallops around the plate and sprinkle with pesto.
