Snoek for the Braai
Snoek is a delicious fish to braai over warm coals. The sweet and tangy apricot jam compliments the fish well and pairs perfectly with the Diemersdal Chardonnay Reserve.
1 whole fresh snoek (approx. 1 kg), head removed and butterflied
3 Tbsp smooth apricot jam
2 Tbsp mild to hot fruit chutney
1 Tbsp crushed garlic & ginger
1 tsp fish spice
The juice of one lemon
1 Tbsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix the apricot jam, chutney, garlic & ginger, fish spice, lemon juice and olive oil.
Place the fish, skin down, onto a well-oiled braai grid and brush the jam mixture generously over the fish. Season with salt & pepper and braai over medium coals for about 25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes. The fish should flake easily, so be careful not to overcook the fish.
Serve the fish with garlic bread, home-made potato salad and a Greek salad.
