Kingklip is a fish many of you will know and love as it is served in a large number of restaurants. Many of you will also know that it can be rather pricey on a menu! So here is a very simple restaurant quality recipe to grill this delicious fish at home for the whole family to enjoy.

The Kingklip I used for this recipe was supplied by Greenfish Traders and has been filleted into 250g portions with skin removed and bone out.

    Your recipe was truly simple and easy to follow! I didn’t have any fish spice so I use fresh parsley, coriander, plenty of garlic, garlic salt, pink salt, black pepper, fresh lemon juice (left the halves in the pan as well) and of course the butter. Wow! Wow! I impressed myself. Thank you again for such an easy recipe
