AT A GLANCE
Choose medium to large garfish for this recipe and ask your fishmonger to butterfly them for you, leaving the head and tail intact. King George whiting works equally well for this dish.
|01||Combine potato in a saucepan with cold salted water, cover, bring to the boil over high heat. Uncover, cook until just tender (5-6 minutes), drain, transfer to a bowl. Combine mayonnaise, cornichons, capers, shallot and lemon juice in a separate bowl, season to taste, add to potato, toss to combine, set aside.|
|02||For quick pickled cucumber, combine cucumber and 1 tsp sea salt in a sieve, stand 10 minutes. Squeeze out liquid, combine in a non-reactive bowl with remaining ingredients, season to taste, set aside.|
|03||Preheat a char-grill over high heat. Season garfish cavities to taste, stuff with lemon slices, secure with kitchen string. Drizzle with oil, season to taste and char-grill, turning once, until golden and just cooked through (2-3 minutes each side). Serve hot with potato and caper salad and pickled cucumber.|
