Whole fish over the coals

Whole fish over the coals

Fish sticks easily to a grid, so it's really important to build up a non-stick surface on a clean grid. Brush the hot grid two or three times with a wad of kitchen paper dipped in oil before you cook the fish.

Method
  • Ask your PnP fishmonger to butterfly the fish by removing the backbone but leaving the rest of the fish intact (with the head and tail still attached).

 

  • Brush inside of fish with olive oil. Season generously inside and out with Ina Paarman’s Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning or salt and pepper.
  • Place lemon slices and herbs in fish cavity. Secure with a kebab stick.
  • Blanch lemon or vine leaves briefly in boiling water. Wrap around fish heads. Secure with string. Cover heads and tails with foil to prevent burning.
  • Brush skin with olive oil and place on a well cleaned and oiled grid.
  • Cook over medium coals.
  • Turn fish once browned, using two spatulas.
