Rick Stein at Bannisters menu is a celebration of the great seafood to be found on the south coast of New South Wales. It's designed to highlight the unique quality of local flat head, king fish, trevally, snapper and sand whiting not to mention oysters from Batemans Bay and Merimbula, superb prawns, calamari, scallops and cray fish.
"My menu is much influenced by the success of The Seafood Restaurant, where keeping it simple is everything. While it contains a number of exotic dishes like an Indonesia seafood curry, crab with cucumber and wakami salad and wasbi mayonnaise and stir fried chilli crab. I've been really keen to include familiar dishes like fish and chips with mushy peas and proper tartare sauce, char-grilled flounder with béarnaise sauce and sashimi of scallops, king fish and tuna.
"The inspiration for my enthusiasm to open up on the south coast comes from Mollymook itself, it's a delightful, sunny and optimistic seaside destination where I have had many a happy holiday catching up with friends who come back year after year. The sandy beaches are lovely, the surf excellent. It's all a bit like Padstow and Cornwall really if just a tad warmer."
