  1. Okay, Buy fish cleaned scaled and gutted.  Chop up an equal mix of ginger, garlic, chili and mix.  Chop up a bunch of coriander and leaves of mint.  Cut lemon into slices.

    Pat dry the fish and cut diagonally across the fish with a sharp knife.  Rub the garlic, chili, ginger, salt and pepper, mixture into the fish on both sides.  Place some inside also.

    Place the fish on a large sheet of foil in the middle.  Place lemon slices on the fish.  Sprinkle coriander.

    Fold up the foil to make a parcel leaving room for the hot air to steam the fish.  Double fold the top seam of the foil.

    Heat the oven to 180 and bake for about 20 – 30 minutes.  The foil will have risen to resemble a dangerous camping pillow. 


    Delicious with rice and nice white wine.? Remember to thank The Virgin St Carmen for the little fishes!? Enjoy!
