Grilled Peppered Fish Direction

  1. Set the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Pat out any excess water with paper towels and rub the salt, stock cube powder, rosemary and curry powder all over your fish and leave to marinade.
  3. In a separate process, bring your red bell pepper and garlic to an oven tray. Coat peppers with olive oil and leave to grill in the oven for 10mins.
  4. Remove peppers and blend with ginger, scotch bonnet and rosemary. This makes the fish sauce.
  5. Make 3 horizontal cuts on the fish on both sides. Add the sauce into the flesh of the fish.
  6. Once your fish has been coated in the sauce, add the thyme inside and leave the fish in the oven at 180 degs celsius to bake for 20-25 minutes.
  7. Set aside on the cooling rack for a few minutes to set. Serve while hot.
