Race 1 of the season sees the F1 Circus headed to Albert Park in Melbourne, Australia.
To kick-off #F1CookAlong, we’ve taken inspiration from the fantastic coastlines found down under and the amazing suppliers of fish found around the North East of England to create a small fishy feast for 2.
We headed to Newcastle’s Grainger Market to visit Chirton Fisheries and Lindsay Brothers for our haul to create the most amazing, fresh fish burgers and admittedly stereotypical ‘shrimp on the barbie’.
We followed this recipe http://www.channel4.com/programmes/hidden-restaurants-with-michel-roux-jr/videos/all/s1-ep2-fish-burger/5357524006001 as seen on ‘Hidden Restaurants with Michael Roux Jr’ during his tour of the North East for wonderful plaice and mackerel burgers.
They were really quick and easy to make with just a few ingredients for both the burgers and sauce. Parsley, dill, chives, capers, lemon, breadcrumbs, mayo (we used shop bought), green chilli and seasoning was all it took along with brioche buns and the usual burger accoutrements.
We tried to keep the prawns as simple as possible, in their shell, skewered and into the fire pit with a couple of slices of burnt lemon and finally served with a little bit of citrusy avocado.
As easy as it was to make, if you’d prefer amazing fish served in the most beautiful setting (and you happen to be in the North East), then head to Riley’s Fish Shack in Tynemouth for simply stunning street-food-style gourmet fish dishes.
We’d love to hear about your Australian inspired dishes (or restaurant experiences) to celebrate the inaugural race of 2017. Use #F1CookAlong and tweet us @foodhaulblog
