Found this one in a little pub in Tasmania - the flavour is stunning, we actually stayed in the town an extra night to go back and have it again. I can't believe I got the recipe. I have not always had the fresh seafood, and have replaced it with the seafood medley mix and white fish, it doesn't taste as good, but it is still great.
