While I was an apprentice chef at the Watermark restaurant in Sydney, the kitchen brigade took turns on who would create the fish of the day offering. The best fish dishes often sold out by the middle of service. Although this dish is not one of the specials we created, it is rather similar in presentation and style to those we prepared many years ago. This is an interesting twist on the regular pesto and instead of using pine nuts I’ve used macadamia nuts. It uses the same ingredients like basil, olive oil, rocket, parsley and parmesan cheese which you’d use in regular pesto, but the macadamia nuts offer a really intense roasted nuts flavour to the macadamia nut pesto.
