A platter of Australian seafood with lime & coriander mayo


  • Soak half the red onion in red wine vinegar to cover for 10 mins. Then squeeze out any excess liquid and toss with the mussels that have been steamed open in either water or white wine. Remove from the shells and set aside to cool. 
  • Then place the scallops on a large plate that can fit into your steamer. Sprinkle with a little oil, cover and briefly steam. Serve hot or warm.
  • At the same time, heat a little oil to smoking in a wok (or large heavy-bottomed non-stick pan) and stirfry the calamari for a few seconds. 
  • Then add the shallot, chillies and garlic. Briefly stirfry, before adding ¼ cup oil with the cider vinegar and 1 heaped cup chopped coriander. Toss well. 
  • To make the sauce Gribiche for the mussels, combine the capers, gherkins, anchovies, tarragon and 3 heaped tbsp mayonnaise in a small bowl. 
  • In another small bowl, toss half the tomatoes with the lemon juice, a little oil and the basil. 
  • Then combine the remaining mayonnaise and coriander with the lime juice. Place in another small bowl. 
  • Gently toss the smoked trout, beans, parsley and a splash of oil with balsamic and seasonings to taste. 
  • To serve, arrange the seafood and trout salad, separately, on a large platter leaving space in the middle for the bowl of coriander mayo. Spoon a good dollop of the sauce Gribiche on the mussels and spoon the tomato and basil salad on the scallops. Enjoy!
