Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.


Combine oranges, lemon and lime in a bowl. Top with onion, fennel and rocket, scatter over capers, and season with salt and pepper.

Whisk oil and vinegar in a small jug and pour over salad. Gently toss to coat. Serve scattered with parsley.
