Very simple, very dramatic way to barbecue a whole fish. I like it with snapper but most whole fish will work with this technique.

kate Queensland, Australia

Serves: 4 

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 whole snapper, head on, cleaned
  • juice of 2 lemons

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Mix together the olive oil and garlic.
  2. Preheat the hotplate of the barbecue to high heat. If you don't have a hotplate, just place a piece of sheet steel over the rack and lower close to the coals.
  3. Place the fish in a wire fish-shaped grilling rack. Brush all over with the olive oil-garlic mixture.
  4. Place the fish on the hotplate. It will smoke a lot! Cook, turning occasionally, until just done, 10-15 minutes. The fish should have little toasty blackened spots.
  5. Transfer the fish to a warmed serving platter and remove the skin. Pour over the lemon juice and serve!
