Makes 12

Chilli & Pepper Jam
8 long red chillies
2 cloves garlic
1 small red onion, chopped
1 roasted red pepper
1 Tbsp grated ginger
Zest of 1 lime
1 cup caster sugar
½ cup white vinegar

Crispy Wontons
12 wonton wrappers, cut into 4cm rounds
200g smoked fish
½ cup chopped red roasted pepper
1 spring onion, chopped finely

1. Cut the chillies lengthways and remove the seeds from 6. Chop them all roughly and place into a kitchen processor. Add the garlic, onion, roasted pepper, ginger and zest, blitzing until finely chopped. Place into a small pot. Add the sugar and vinegar cooking over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Continue cooking for 20-25 minutes until thickened and jam-like. Spoon into a jar and store in the fridge until ready to use.

2. Heat 1cm flavourless oil in a frying pan. Cook 2 or 3 wonton wrappers at a time for 30 seconds then turn for another 30 seconds until crispy. Remove and cool.

3. In a small bowl flake the fish. Add the red pepper and spring onion, tossing gently. On to a platter place the wonton wrappers. Top with smoked fish and a bit of chilli jam.
