Spice Quarter Australia | Seafood Sensation Spice Blend | Poached Hoki with Sauteed Vegetables

  
We Australians love our seafood. Any why wouldn't we! We have an abundance of lovely fresh seafood at our doorsteps. However, most people are scared of cooking seafood. They worry about over cooking it and spoiling the delicate meat or over seasoning it and spoiling the flavour!
  
Most seafood recipes go along the lines of "Throw a shrimp on the barbie!" For our non-Australian friends, that is a line that defines Australian summer! We rarely come across seafood recipes that are adaptable to home cooking and care for the delicacy of fish. 
  
With this in mind, we have developed a blend, especially for seafood. We have also introduced a new cooking technique to the Spice Quarter recipe collection, poaching.
  
This recipe is simplicity defined. It is a recipe that uses standard pantry ingredients with inexpensive white fish and our Seafood Sensation spice blend. Let us show you how to transform just a few simple ingredients into an impressive seafood dish!

  • 150g Hoki fillets
