Wash produce before use


Make the carrot-raisin slaw

In a medium bowl, toss together the carrots, cabbage, raisins, and “creamy” slaw dressing. Stir in 2 to 3 teaspoons water and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Make the nectarine BBQ sauce

  • Peel the nectarine. Cut the nectarine in half and remove the pit; coarsely chop the fruit.

In a small sauce pot over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Stir in the nectarine and cook until starting to soften, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the BBQ sauce base, reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the nectarine is softened and the sauce is heated through, 8 to 10 minutes. 

Remove from the heat. Using the back of a wooden spoon, break up any large nectarine pieces. Season to taste with salt and pepper. While the sauce is cooking, prepare the fish.


Prep and cook the fish

  • Crack the egg into a shallow bowl, season with salt and pepper, and beat with a fork until just blended. 
  • On a plate or shallow bowl, season the cornmeal blend with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer.
  • Pat the fish dry with a paper towel; season lightly with salt and pepper.

Working with 1 fillet at a time, dip the fish into the egg; let the excess drip off, then gently press the fish into the cornmeal, coating both sides. 

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 2 to 3 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the fish and cook, turning once, until the crust is golden brown and the fish is cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side for sole and 4 to 6 minutes per side for snapper or barramundi. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.


Transfer the carrot-raisin slaw to individual plates. Top with the fish, spoon over as much nectarine BBQ sauce as you like, and serve.
