Mediterranean Style Whole Steamed Tarakihi & Ratatouille


1 x pack of 2 tarakihi approximately 700-900g

1 x Fennel Bulb washed, core removed and sliced

1 x Brown Onion Sliced

1 x Small Bunch of fresh lemon thyme

1 x Small Bunch of fresh Oregano

1 x Small Bunch Marjoram

1 x Lemon thinly sliced

1 x Bunbury Farmers Market Ratatouille vegetables prepared as per recipe

1 x Bamboo Steaming Basket


In a large Shallow pot bring enough water to submerge the bottom of the Bamboo Basket to boil, turn down to a simmer and cover. To prepare the whole fish make 3 long slits per side from the top of the fish down to the belly and deep enough to reveal the bone underneath, dry the cavity with some paper towel and stuff with the Sliced Fennel, Sliced Onion, fresh Herbs & Sliced Lemon. Once the whole fish is dressed place in the steam basket for approximately 20 mins or until cooked completely through. Serve Platter Style over the ratatouille vegetables.
