This recipe is pretty much the same as my very first recipe ever posted, “The Easiest Grilled Kingklip”. It still seems to be a fan favourite with readers constantly confirming that it is just that: EASY! Not only super simple, but delicious and juicy too.


For those of you who love soles, baby Kingklip will be a favourite too. It pulls straight off the bone and melts in your mouth!
