Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g pumpkin, peeled and diced into 2 cm pieces
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon extra
freshly ground black pepper
1 red capsicum
75g baby spinach
75g wild rocket
1/3 cup coriander leaves
1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
75g pine nuts, toasted
1/2 preserved lemon, soaked and pulp removed, finely diced, (optional)
4 x 150g snapper fillets
salt

Pomegranate dressing

Quantity Ingredient
60ml extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons pomegranate molasses
freshly ground black pepper
salt

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
lemon wedges

Method

  1. For pomegranate dressing, combine all ingredients in a screwtop jar and shake well.
  2. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  3. Lay pumpkin on a baking tray, drizzle with half the oil, and season to taste. Roast in the preheated oven for 20–25 minutes, until tender. Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Place capsicum on a baking tray, brush with the remaining oil and roast in the preheated oven, turning once or twice, until skin blisters, approximately 20 minutes. Place the capsicum in a plastic bag to steam the skin. When cool, slip skin away and remove the seeds. Slice flesh into 1⁄2 cm thick slices.
  5. Combine the pumpkin, capsicum, spinach, rocket, herbs, pine nuts and preserved lemon, if using, in a large bowl.
  6. Heat extra oil in a heavy-based frypan over a medium–high heat and sauté fish fillets until golden brown and cooked through, for 3–4 minutes on each side. Season to taste.
  7. To serve, pour over enough dressing to coat the salad and toss to combine. Divide the salad and fish between four plates, and serve with a wedge of lemon each.
