  • 2.tablespoons chopped coriander
  • 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  • 1 bottle 400mL F, Whitlock and Sons Moroccan Marinade
  • 1 long fresh red chilli, deseeded, chopped

Get down to business:
  1. Place quinoa and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, covered, for 12 minutes or until water is evaporated and quinoa is tender. Add coriander and mint, 1 tsp zest, half the marinade and half the chilli. Stir to combine. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine lemon juice, oil and remaining rind, marinade and chilli in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Cut 3 diagonal slashes in the thickest part of snapper on both sides. Place two 80cm pieces of foil on the benchtop. Top each with baking paper. Place a fish in the centre of each.
  4. Preheat an enclosed barbecue grill on medium-high. Stuff fish cavities with quinoa mixture and season. Top with lemon slices. Wrap fish in foil. Cook with barbecue hood down, turning fish halfway, for 12-14 minutes or until fish are just cooked through.
  5. Steam broccolini and beans until tender-crisp. Place fish on a platter with steamed greens.
