  • 1/3 cup (55g) raisins
  • 2 tablespoons verjuice (see note) or boiling water
  • 1 tablespoon chopped thyme leaves
  • Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 x 180g red snapper fillets, pin-boned
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley, leaves picked
  • 1/4 cup (40g) toasted pine nuts
  • 50g low-fat feta, crumbled


  • Step 1
    Soak raisins in verjuice for 5 minutes until softened slightly. Drain, reserving liquid.

    Meanwhile, combine thyme, zest and 2 teaspoons oil in a bowl. Season to taste and mix well to combine. Rub all over fish.
