Method

  1. Slash the skin of the whole fish, if using, on each side with a sharp knife. Mix the ginger and garlic, season with salt, then rub all over the fish.
  2. Mix the yogurt with the oil, spices and seasoning. Use to coat the fish inside and out, then chill until ready to cook.
  3. TO BARBECUE: Cook straight on the rack (or on foil if you are afraid of it sticking) for 6-8 mins each side for the whole fish, or 3-4 mins for the tuna steaks. Cooking time will depend on how hot your barbecue is when you start.

I love spicy food but this was just a quick fix and all it did was spoil the fish that would have tasted nicer on its own.

We like a strong a flavour....by mistake we added the garlic & ginger to the yoghurt as well as adding to fish...out of this world!

Great, easy recipe, cooked in foil in the oven and served with Indian Summer Salad - delicious.

I made this today with a whole rainbow trout. I wrapped it in foil and baked it in the oven for about 20 mins, gas Mark 4 (I think!) it was delicious, so good in fact I wish I'd bought 2 fish!! I WILL be making this again.

Used 2 x 500g whole Red Snappers, cooked under the grill for 7 minutes either side, served with tomato, cucumber, red onion and coriander salad. Absolutely delicious but Snapper is very boney!

I made this with trout and did it on the bbq. it was lovely! it did stick to the bbq though but i'd rather that than stick it in foil because if you're going to do that you might as well cook it in the oven.

I make this dish regularly. It's always a success. I've served it with the tomato coriander and cucumber salad and also the Indian summer salad.

I would really like to try this dish but not using a BBQ (I dont have one) was wondering how long it would take in the oven and how hot it should be if I were to bake it like Claire B? Any ideas anyone.

Used salmon steaks instead - wrapped in foil and did in the oven - ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS, a firm favourite. Lovely served with the indian summer salad on the site.

Lovely recipe. Used Sea Bream and cooked on the BBQ. Sauce didn't overpower the fish. Very tasty and simple.

I've put the fish under the grill and the taste is fantastic!
Original way of preparing fish fast and with a few ingredients.
