Grill Fish

Its been a while on the blog. So sorry, i have been concentrating more on my Instagram page. Follow me on instagram @ofoodi to get quick recipes and uploads. Nevertheless the website is back on track.

A major food experience for me in 2013 was the cooking/grilling of Fishes. A lot of my clients ordered grill fish and chips for the festive celebrations according to their budget. Different categories and grade of fishes were cooked delivered and many came with its challenges. 
Grilling a fish like Panla which is the Cod was so ingredient consuming and its fillets broke most of the time. You get this kind of experience always and the fish comes out dry and tasteless. What most chefs would usually do is to add some sauce on the fish to rejuvenate its taste. For a fish like mackerel (Titus), you get the best out of it when you spice a lot with some dry pepper and you eat with an accompanied roast food like Plantain (Boli) or Fried Yam, or cassava flakes. So fishes like panla, titus are not so nice for fancy grills, they taste better when roasted and included in African Vegetable soups like Efo riro.
For fancy grills like Fish and chips, fish in batter, fish in prawn jackets, flour coated fish, steamed fish, barbecue fish, grill fish, choice fishes like Tilapia, Croaker, Barracuda, are best used. You get that distinct natural flavour and aroma that is undisputedly savoury and delicious. Marinating a night before is really effective.

Simply cut open the fish from the side, stuff with ingredients like,
Dry pepper
Chopped Pepper ( for spicy)
Vegetable oil
Stork Cubes and or liquid seasoning
Thyme or Basil.
Bask the fish in all these ingredients mixed together, leave in a refrigerator over night, and its ready to grill for 40 minutes under a 180 degree oven or grill heat.
For special flavours you can add white wine when marinating with some brown sugar. Lemon juice, Lime juice, lemon or lime zest can also give it a lovely different taste. Do not forget to draw lines on your fish with a knife, it allows the ingredient penetrate faster.
Blended green pepper is another tasteful kick you can had to grill fish. It comes out very fantastic.
