It is a father’s privilege, nay, a duty to torment his son. Drawing inspiration from watching his favourite episode of his favourite show for the eighty-eleventh time it was with the greatest pleasure that I served him up one of his favourite Octonauts: Herb-Encrusted Swordfish Salad.

Prawns have always held a very important place in my family: growing up in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales they were always a Christmas special because living two hours inland they were too expensive to be anything but a once-a-year treat.
