A quality Western Port snapper from Coronet Bay
With the annual Tea Tree snapper competition over and done with for another year, and the snapper season in full swing here in Victoria, I figured it was time to throw up a recipe for those that want a change from cooking them whole on the BBQ. This one is pretty simple but very tasty! It can also be used for flathead.
- Snapper (filleted, skinned and cut into strips)
- Plain flour (to flour the fish)
- 1 Stalk of lemongrass
- 1 Chopped tomato
- 1 small chopped capsicum
- Fish Sauce
- Soy sauce
- Chilli flakes
- garlic powder
- 1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar
- Olive Oil
1. Drizzle hot pan with olive oil so there is a light layer.
2. Add the chopped capsicum and tomato
3. Tip a teaspoon of brown sugar evenly over the capsicum and tomato
4. Cook until softens (takes 2 minutes)
5. Add the lemongrass
6. Add a dash of fish sauce and soy sauce
7.Add a dash of garlic powder and chilli flakes. The sauce should be caramelising due to the brown sugar.
8. Add the lightly floured snapper pieces
9. Cook until fish is cooked through
10. Serve with rice and some Asian greens

Sea Sherpa are excited to announce that this beauty, the “Kayak Cart-Beach by Wheeleez™” has been added to the prize pool. Beachwheels Australia products have long been a favourite in the kayak fishing community; those tough soft-sand launches are made a breeze using balloon wheel carts. The Kayak Cart –Beach is ideal for fishing skis where scupper carts cannot be used, but it is equally at home under plastic kayaks protecting your scuppers from damage.

Exciting times ahead with two new touring models about to be released from the Stealth factory in Pinetown. The new 17ft Toura is already being tested and there is a 15ft version in the pipeline. These kayaks boast plenty of storage both front and rear with he new Stealth twist and seal hatch on the front deck and a large entrance oval hatch on the rear deck. Camping friendly storage and the option of a skeg or flip-up style trailing rudder ticks a lot of boxes for those chasing an ocean ready tourer. These kayaks are lightweight and also encourage a comfortable paddling position with the seat set higher than the footwells to improve drainage via the venturi cuppers, and in the absence of the fish hatch, you can enjoy feet-together stance like an Ocean Racing Ski (ORS) to help improve your rotation when paddling. There will definitely be some of these on the way to Melbourne as soon as they are ready, I’m itching to get one out for a run at Cape Woolamai!
Here’s the teaser video from the factory floor with more information -enjoy!
