Beer Battered Tarakihi Sliders

Beer Battered Tarakihi Sliders

You will need:

• Buns or light bread

• Feta or capers/pickles as a garnish (optional)

• Lemon wedges

Asian Slaw

• 1 heaped cup of grated carrot

• 1 small apple, grated

• 1 tbs fresh mint, finely chopped

• 2 tbs fresh parsley, finely chopped

• 1 tbs fresh chives, finely chopped

• A sprinkle of toasted sesame seeds (optional)


• Juice of one lime

• 1 tsp sesame oil

• 1 clove of garlic, minced

• ½ - 1 tsp minced ginger

Combine all slaw ingredients in a large bowl. Mix dressing ingredients together in a bowl and stir through the slaw. Eat straight away or cover and refrigerate.
