I can’t believe it’s been a year since I went to Australia. One dish I enjoy recreating from my trip is this Crispy Fish with Green Apple Salad. It’s simple to make plus Sydney being a melting pot of cuisines, Thai food fits right in. You’ve got your panko crusted fish, sweet and spicy sauce and finally a fresh salad of apples, herbs, nuts and peppers. Sitting outside along Darling Harbor eating this dish felt good after a day at the beach and exploring the CBD. I can’t wait to go back to Australia! To think this was a dish I ate on day 2 out of a total of two weeks in Australia/New Zealand shows how much great cuisine these countries have. I will also say traveling with Celiac was super easy, and the Australians get it which is a win.
