February 21st, 2009


 4 cloves garlic, crushed

1 tablespoon fish sauce

Juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon grated ginger

2 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce

1 bunch fresh coriander (cilantro) chopped

1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar

2 tablespoons white wine

600 g (1 ¼ lb) whole fish like snapper, tarakihi, or fish steaks like hapuku

2 spring onions, cut into julienne strips


Mix together the garlic, fish sauce, lemon juice, ginger, chilli sauce, coriander, rice wine vinegar and wine.

Place the fish on a large piece of double thickness heavy foil.  Pour the marinade over the fish and sprinkle with the spring onion

Wrap the fish in the foil to make a parcel.  Cook over medium heat on a barbecue plate for about 30 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.  Alternatively, bake in a medium oven (180°C/360°F)

Serves 4

Thai fish

    Hi Margie – we are going to try this recipe tonight. It sounds delicious. By the way I thought that you would like marinated port as much as curried curry.
