"Snapper with macadamia pesto and bean salad"

Hubby did this one up the other week with Snapper and it was delicious!  So delicious that we since had it again but tried it out with Tuna Steak.  Both equally fabulous.  You will probably have left over pesto like we did, which you can use on another meal.

Its super easy - give it a whirl and let us know how you enjoyed it!
 
INGREDIENTS:

500g sweet potato, peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 small red onion, thinly sliced into rounds
1 tablespoon lime juice
4 (about 180g each) snapper fillets
300g green beans, trimmed, blanched

MACADAMIA PESTO

75g macadamias, toasted
1 cup fresh coriander leaves, firmly packed
1 small garlic clove, coarsely chopped
1 lime, rind finely grated, juiced
60ml (1/4 cup) extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon water

METHOD

Step 1: 
Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place potato on the prepared tray. Drizzle with 1 tbs of the oil. Season. Roast, stirring halfway, for 30 minutes or until golden and tender.

Step 2:
Meanwhile, for the pesto, process the macadamias, coriander, garlic and lime rind in a food processor until finely chopped. Combine the lime juice, oil and water in a jug. Add to macadamia mixture, with the motor running, in a slow steady stream until well combined and smooth. Season.

Step 3:
Place the onion in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Stand for 3 minutes. Drain well. Place the onion and lime juice in a large bowl. Season, then set aside to macerate.

Step 4:
Heat the remaining oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Pat the skin of the snapper dry with paper towel. Season. Cook snapper, skin side down, for 2 minutes or until crisp. Turn and cook for 1-2 minutes or until just cooked through. Transfer snapper to a plate to rest.

Step 5:
Add the sweet potato, beans and 1 tbs of the pesto to the onion mixture. Toss gently to combine. Divide among serving plates. Top each with snapper and a spoonful of the pesto.
