  • Fishwife Recipes

    Whole Fish on the Braai

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

    • Whole Red Stumpnose (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


    1. Scale the Red Stumpnose 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.

          Very good!

          I should have read better, got a whole fish, which I had to fillet myself, but enjoyed it in the end. Top quality fresh fish, though.

          Totally satisfied

          After not having the Stumpnose for a long time, it was good to make friends with an old favourite whilst on holiday in Simonstown. It was very fresh it and tasted delicious. The fish was top class prepared on the Braai.

          Red Stumpnose

          I cannot believe this amazing service and the MOST amazing Red Stumpnose. The “whole” fish is absolutely beautiful (with the freshest, brightest eyes) and will be such a privilege to cook and have for a special evening. Thank you so much Greenfish, this on-line opportunity to be able to order and receive fresh fish delivered to our door is wonderful. We ordered at about 15.30, see your email below, we received the delivery at about 16.00!!! You have secured a long term, loyal customer.

          Exceeded our Expectations!

          A HUGE thank you for the beautiful stumpnose I ordered and received yesterday. It was absolutely divine!! My husband cannot stop talking about it - it really was the best fish we’ve ever had at home. My husband has recommended the company to a lot of his friends and family - one friend has already placed an order for 4 various boxes having seen just the pics of our fish! The same-day service (if orders are placed by 11am) is absolutely fantastic as well as the box, ice pack and the packaging of the fish itself. It was the first time I purchased yesterday but definitely not the last!

          Outstanding Stumpnose

          This is the second time that we have ordered Stumpnose from Greenfish. Both times they have been incredibly fresh (you could literally smell the ocean on them) and so delicious once cooked whole on the BBQ. It's probably the best fish that I have ever had. No exaggeration.
