We love our seafood at Christmas time in Oz. Snapper is my fillet of choice, but you can really use any fish you like. The Chorizo Almond Crumble is excellent on its own or on top of grilled chicken or seared scallops.

If Christmas was more than once a year then this would be on your table more than once a't wait for Christmas to come around. Try it now. Delish!
