CRUNCHY SOFT WHITING TACOS

CRUNCHY SOFT WHITING TACOS

The best way to eat whiting is nice and simple, right? Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell Miguel. Instead, he welded Jack and Alli’s South Australian whiting fillets into a fusion of Aussie, Spanish and Mexican flavours, concocting these delicious crunchy, soft...
MIGUEL’S LOBSTER PAELLA

MIGUEL’S LOBSTER PAELLA

With lobbys fresh from King Island on the menu, we figured it was time for Miguel to pull one of our favourite salty recipes from his locker of watery wonder — his signature seafood paella. It’s a visual feast as well as a damn tasty one. And it’s perfect for cooking...
CEVICHE: CITRUS-CURED KINGFISH

CEVICHE: CITRUS-CURED KINGFISH

Kingfish are great to catch and awesome to eat. If you’re reading The Captain, you probably knew that. But did you know just how versatile kingfish flesh is? No, you didn’t. I reckon kingfish is the black angus of the ocean, full of Omega 3 fatty acids and ideal for...

MIGUEL’S MUSSELS

MIGUEL’S MUSSELS

Miguel loves it when The Captain’s crew tour, because he’s normally on the receiving end of a seafood bounty. This time we’d been to a seafood garden off Eden, New South Wales – Erick Hyland’s mussel farm to be precise. He’s not just handy at knocking up fibreglass...
EAST GIPPSLAND ESCAPE

EAST GIPPSLAND ESCAPE

  Every fisho worth his salt has a secret fishing spot where it seems like the fish never stop biting. The sun always sets on glassy waters while pelagics feverishly compete for the evening hatch. The esky is always full and cold, and sleep is only broken by the...
MIGUEL’S SNAPPER A LA SAL

MIGUEL’S SNAPPER A LA SAL

You don’t even have to go shopping for this simple snapper recipe. Just snag a red, raid the missus pantry for some basics, then start grinding on the mortar and pestle like you’re furiously hauling a 40kg black jew from a coral reef – in just 5M of water!...

INTERNATIONAL FLAVOURS
