Mallorcan bread salad

  • 4 slices woodfired bread, torn
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow capsicum, roasted, peeled, cut into strips (or use 4 ready-roasted red capsicum pieces)
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 cup coriander leaves
  • 6 marinated white anchovies (see note), chopped
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sherry vinegar (see note) or red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika (pimenton, see note)
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped


  • Step 1
    For the salad, preheat the oven to 180°C. Toss bread with olive oil on a baking tray. Toast in the oven for 10 minutes, turning, until golden.
  • Step 2
    Place croutons, capsicum, tomato, onion, herbs and anchovy in a bowl. Mix oil, vinegar, paprika and garlic in a separate small bowl. Season, then set both aside while you cook the fish.
  • Step 3
    Pat the fish cutlets dry with paper towel. Combine the ginger, spices, coriander, lemon zest and juice, oil and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add fish, turning to coat well.
  • Step 4
    Heat a lightly oiled heavy-based frypan on medium-high heat. Cook fish for 3-4 minutes each side until golden and just cooked. Pour the dressing over salad, toss to combine, then serve with the fish cutlets.
