BBQ Grilled Mackrell

I absolutely love fish on the “braai”/ BBQ.  But you need the right fish – it has to be firm and a bit fatty so as not to dry out.  So Mackrell – what a great fish for the “braai”.

My Basic Marinade for Fish on the Braai (BBQ)

Generally I hate marinades, because it masks the flavour of the meat, and quite honestly, if you are “braaing”, the marinade generally burns and emparts a bitter flavour to the meat.  But this marinade is very simple and delicate, really adding to the whole experience.

Poke (pronounced PohKay) is simply fantastic.  It is fresh and healthy and delicious, all in a single bowl!  Poke is the Hawaiian take on sushi, usually served with a marinated raw fish and a selection of vegetables.  But, there are 100’s of variations, really, so it is one of those dishes that you can really experiment with and create your own signature dish.

Baby Marrow (Zucchini) and Cucumber Salad

This salad celebrates the freshness of baby marrow and cucumbers.  I just love this salad with “braaied” (BBQ) meat.  It adds just the right amount of freshness and acidity to break the rich meat from the flames.  Again, it is quite a simple recipe, but as always my motto is “Simple-is-best”.
