  • 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.

          Awesome baked whole Red Roman

          The fish was very clean, super fresh and easy to prepare. Delivered whole , scaled and gutted . I made a marinade and cut and folded open the vacuum bag like a book and could work on that. No mes. No fuss. Rubbed on the marinade and a few hours later baked the fish. It was absolutely delicious!

          Amazingly delicious and dangerously fresh!

          It was my first purchase from Greenfish. I have never purchased fresh fish online, because you might just be catfished! Luckily this was a Red Roman, and it was incredibly delicious. A fresh fish smells like a fresh fish and looks like a fresh fish! Added butter and thyme to the pan with some garlic, and oh my, what a beautiful fish. Already on the site for my next purchase!

          Best fish in the world

          I've been waiting for this fish to become available for a while and it was so worth the wait. Freshly fried with salt, pepper and fish masala... I ordered another before I finished eating my first. Will be adding an alert for when this becomes available again. You will not regret buying this!!!
