Mexican Surfer-style Fish

FavoriteLoadingAdd to My Recipe Book

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 (170g) fish fillets with skin on, such as dorado
  • 2 tsp each dried origanum and chilli powder
  • 3⁄4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1⁄2 tsp coarse salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp coarsely chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 lime, halved

Recipe Directions

1. Place fish fillets in a dish just large enough to hold them in a single layer. Stir origanum, chilli powder, cumin and salt together in a small bowl; mix in olive oil and coriander. Rub spice mixture over fish. If not braaiing immediately, cover fish and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.

2. Lightly oil a clean braai grid. The coals are ready when you can hold your hand 10cm above the grid for 2 to 3 seconds. Or if you’re grilling, heat a flat grill to high heat.

3. Braai fish skin-side down, without turning, until skin can be easily pried from the grid with a spatula (about 3 minutes). Flip fish and cook until it flakes slightly when pressed and is opaque in the centre (3 to 4 minutes more).

4. Transfer to a plate and squeeze half a lime over all fillets. Cut remaining lime half into wedges and serve one with each portion.
