Snoek marinade |

snoek braai

This is a really great narinade for Snoek but can be used on any game fish like yellowtail. It gives a sweetness that really really comes out beautifully when baked on a braai or in the oven. the quantities here are for a 1.2-1.5kg whole fish.

What you need

100g melted butter
150ml lemon juice
25ml worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons smooth apricot jam
2 tablespoons granular mustard

The process

Melt the butter first and then add all of the rest of the ingredients, give it a good stir and remove fromthe heat.

Place your fish in tinfoil and cover with the marinade. Allow to marinade for about 30 minutes before placing in the oven at 200 Celsius or on the braai.

After 20minutes check to see if it is done by flaking some of the meat aside and if translucent it is done. Baste the fish with the hot marinade and grill for a further 2 minutes to caramelise the top before serving.
