Herbed BBQ reef fish

I love simple flavours and easy food!! Buy as direct as you can to get the best reef fish. I made this for an informal affair with family, cake and good wine! It was a lovely day, and almost everyone commented how fabulous the fish was! This is sure to impress, yet is so simple. The fish really speaks for itself. Have a go!


A whole reef fish, gutted and scaled

1 lemon

½ handful box basil

½ handful oregano sprigs

½ handful chopped parsley

A pinch of salt

A good crack of pepper



Chop lemon into pieces and tear up the herbs. Place the fish on a piece of alfoil or baking paper. Dot the lemon and herbs underneath and on top of the fish. Wrap the fish. Place the fish wrapped on a medium heat BBQ for 10 minutes. Carefully pick up the package and turn it over, for a further 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of your fish. Serve immediately and watch everyone flock to the table!

In the picture you can see two fish, one is plain and the other herbed. Both delicious!
