  • ¼ cup (60ml) olive oil
  • 4 x 200g snapper fillets, skin on
  • 400g asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 green onions (scallions), shredded
  1. Place the avocado, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, salt and pepper in a small food processor and process until smooth. Set aside. Place the jalapeño, remaining lime juice and 2 tablespoons of the oil in a bowl and mix to combine. Set aside. 
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Brush the snapper and asparagus with the remaining oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
