6 Super Seafood Dinner Ideas

Super Seafood RecipesOur seafood team have pulled together their top 6 highlights at the seafood counter this April:

  1. Pink Ling
    This firm fish has few bones and large flakes. Simply tread cubes onto skewers and barbecue, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, chopped flat-leaf parsley and baby capers.
  2. Black Tiger Prawns
    Farmed in Queensland, these prawns have a sweet, firm texture. Stir a little lemon juice and finely grated rind into bought aioli and season well with black pepper. Serve with cooked prawns.
  3. Flathead
    This sweet fish has fine flakes and few bones, so it’s great for kids. For an easy dinner idea, fill a warm tortilla with sliced avocado, chopped lettuce, grilled flathead, a squeeze of lime and Tabasco for the grown-ups.
  4. Crimson Snapper
    Delicate and mild, this fish varies from red to golden pink. To serve, steam snapper on a bed of sliced ginger and spring onion. Top with warm soy sauce, a little sesame oil, coriander and sliced spring onion.
  5. Pacific Oysters
    These oysters are delicious eaten fresh. Drizzle with red wine vinegar mixed with finely chopped shallot, French style, or try a squeeze of lime and a little chopped coriander for a Thai twist.
  6. Barramundi
    This fish has a soft-medium texture and mild taste. Simply dust in a little seasoned plain flour and panfry in olive oil. Serve with pan-fried thinly sliced fennel and prosciutto.

Love Beets celebrates first Aussie Harvest

New Love BeetsGood News Australian Love Beets are now available in the fresh produce section! These home grown beets beetroot are peeled, cooked fresh and packed so they are ready to eat.

It also means no more purple fingers from peeling beetroot, as all of the hard work is done; you simply cut open the pack and add the beets to a salad, roast them in the oven, make juice, soups and dips, or even add them to your next chocolate cake.

Why Beetroot? It makes an incredibly healthy addition to your weekly meal planning, as this original super food contains:

  • Antioxidants, carotenoids and flavonoids which have been reported to help reduce absorption of LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol into the bloodstream
  • Soluble fibre, which has also been shown to reduce cholesterol absorption
  • Folate which is great for expectant mothers

Beetroot is virtually fat free and low in calories, and has a low GL (glycaemic load) which means it is converted into sugars very slowly and therefore helps to keep blood sugar levels stable.

Produced by an Australian family-owned business, Love Beets come in 4 delicious flavours, including; Balsamic, Chilli and Traditional Sweet & Mild flavours and the exclusive to Coles Traditional Sweet & Mild Wedges.

Available in a convenient 250g vac pack, look out for the range in store or buy online at
