Look no further for healthy BBQ fish recipes that are easy to grill and I'm itching to share them. On this page is a Greek influenced recipe that’ll have you rushing to light the grill and when you’ve checked this one out please browse my complete
for more great recipes.
As will most Greek food, oregano is the predominant herb but in this fish recipe it is actually an option so up to you………
I’m not going to be prescriptive about the fish other than to say you need whole fish. Imagine you’re in the warm Mediterranean, a nice small white fish is required, maybe a snapper or small sea bream – as opposed to oily fish such as sardines.
Scrape, clean and wash the fish and dry them before brushing with olive oil and sprinkling with salt and pepper (and oregano).
TIP - If using a Teflon® barbecue mat brush your mat with olive oil too
Place the fish of a very hot grill and when the fish begins to brown sprinkle with a mix of the olive oil and lemon juice, turn them over and baste the other side. Turn once or twice again (not too many times) until the fish is cooked and transfer to a hot dish.
The whole cooking process should take about 15 minutes, maybe a little longer depending on the size of your fish.
Take the remaining olive oil / lemon juice mix, add a tablespoon of water, some salt and the parsley, whip it up and pour over the fish.
