Balmain Bugs and Whiting


Prep. time 15 mins

8 large Balmain bugs (shovel-nosed sand lobsters)
4 whiting fillets or ocean perch or equivalent
200g kumara (orange sweet potato) straws, deep fried to crispness
5g Mountain pepper
leek and capsicum julienne or other garnishing

If the bugs are alive, place them into the freezer for 30 minutes and then boil briefly in salted water. Refresh in iced water and peel the tails reserving four heads as garnishing. Char-grill the tail meat and whiting fillets until just done and arrange 2 bug tails and a fish fillet on each of 4 warm plates garnishing with a bug head per plate and shredded coloured vegetables. Season the fried kumara with the mountain pepper and plate up. Serve at once with a lemon myrtle butter sauce over the seafood.
