2 bunches coriander, roughly chopped
150g pine nuts, lightly toasted

For the dressing
60ml lemon juice

Method
Preheat the oven to 180?C/350?F/gas 4.? To make the salad, toss the chickpeas with the olive oil on a baking tray and roast for 25 minutes or until golden. Allow to cool slightly. In a bowl, toss together the coriander, pine nuts and chickpeas.

To prepare the fish, in a large bowl, lightly beat the eggs with the salt and pepper. Add the snapper fillets and allow them to sit for a few minutes. On? a flat plate, mix the potato flour, za?atar, sumac and salt. Lift the snapper pieces, 1 at a time, out of the egg mixture and coat on both sides with the flour mixture. Set aside.

Heat the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan over medium-high heat until the oil is hot. Add the snapper pieces and fry for about 1 minute on each side or until golden.

Remove and drain on paper towel.

To serve, spread the salad on a wide serving platter and scatter the snapper pieces on top. Garnish with coriander and lemon zest.
