What's great about it

This is a glorious recipe featured in my new cookbook, Purely Delicious. A simple and classic recipe that takes just a few moments to prepare. Snapper is high in omega-3s that help support the health of every cell in the body. Fish is also low in saturated fat and it is a source of protein: the main function of the protein is to build and repair as well as sustain muscle. Also, fish is a good source of iodine that helps to support your thyroid which in turn helps to regulate metabolic rate.


Serves 2

2 x 200 g (7 oz) wild-caught snapper fillets

10 g (2/5 oz) butter



60 ml (2 fl oz) tamari soy sauce

60 ml (2 fl oz) organic maple syrup

30 ml (1 fl oz) mirin

50 g (1 ¾ oz) red apple, grated (with skin)

1 golden shallot, finely diced

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated



1 teaspoon olive oil

100 g (3 ½ oz) cavolo nero, washed and shredded

120 g (4 oz) baby spinach leaves

a pinch of black pepper

1 teaspoon lemon juice
