  • Fishwife Recipes

    Whole Fish on the Braai

    The Fishwife is here to share a delicious recipe. You will need:

    • Whole Red Roman (or any whole small fish)
    • 1 x Red Onion
    • 1 big handful of Coriander
    • 2 tsp Garlic
    • 1 tsp chopped Chilli
    • 2 tsp grated Ginger
    • 1/2 cup Soy sauce
    • Salt & pepper
    • 1 Lemon

    Preparation:

    1. Scale the Red Roman if not already done. An easy way to do this is by pulling a fork against the grain which will take the scales off.
    2. Make sure your fish is gutted and the cavity is nice and clean.
    3. Score the skin of the fish to allow the flavours of your marinade to infuse into the meat.
    4. Chop the red onion and coriander and fill the cavity of the fish
    5. Grate some lemon rind into the cavity. Set the lemon aside for later.
    6. Mix together the garlic, chilli, ginger and soy sauce and use this to coat the fish (pour and rub half the mixture over the fish, keeping remaining half for basting throughout the cooking process).
    7. Place fish in a braai grid which has a handle and can close and be turned easily.
    8. Cook the whole fish over medium coals for approximately 20 - 25 minutes, flipping every 3-5 minutes so that the skin doesn't burn. Using a basting brush, paint the fish with the marinade with every flip.
    9. The fish is done when the eyes are white and the skin has pulled tight. If you take a fork and pull the meat from the back bone, it should pull away easily.

          Red Roman whole fish on the braai

          The freshness, quality of the fish, perfect packaging and same day delivery from Cape Town to Paarl in the Winelands, is simply word class. We had the two romans on the braai for lunch today. A special treat!

          First Red Roman buyer

          Received my order the same day of ordering it. The fish was beautifully packaged and kept cold with ice bags inside little cooler box. Fish was big, beautiful and fresh. Can't wait to put it on the braai over the weekend. Green Fish never disappoint. Thank you so much for your excellent service!

          Absolutely delicious!

          The fish were lovely, fresh and plump. I bought it for my family as I don’t usually enjoy fish, but I tried a piece and ended up making a meal of it and enjoying it as much as they did. It wasn’t fishy at all, and it had a firm, meaty texture which I really enjoyed.

          Red Roman fish braai

          I bought a whole Red Roman from Greenfish for my first fish braai. It was delicious! The fish had been beautifully prepared and I just needed to marinate and stuff it. I followed the fishwife's recipe for a whole fish braai, except filled the fish with dill and parsley instead of coriander. It was an easy cook.

          Fresh red roman

          As fresh as if I just got it on the wharf, fillet and prepared with one of the recipes suggested with lemon, garlic and herbs and a splash of white wine on garlic mashed potatoes and braised tricolor carrots

          So pleased with both the ease of ordering and delivery plus such beautiful and fresh fish. Please do make it easier to order prep details re. Filleting, deboning, etc. I had to send a follow up email to do so. But my filleted Red Roman arrived perfectly and within hours! Thanks
