AT A LOSS FOR EASTER?
like buying food they don’t need when they can rather use what they already have in the house. “Take meat, for instance. It is expensive yet we think that a perfect dinner or lunch must have plenty of meat. We do not need meat all the time to create magic on our plates,” she says. “There are a lot of people who prefer seafood for the Easter holidays because they want to stay away from blood. I also like the idea of seafood because it is not just healthy, but affordable as well – that’s if you stay away from prawns and crayfish. “You could try a simple grilled hake or snoek fish. Pair this with rice, gravy and green salad.” For an exotic feel, Van Zyl says, “substitute rice with couscous – this will surely impress your guests”. 1 lemon 120g butter 3 crushed garlic cloves 1/2 cup of finely chopped coriander 1/2 cup sweet chilli sauce Handful of finely chopped peppadews 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard Salt and pepper
Cleaned snoek with head and tail cut, mix all the ingredients well and marinate the snoek.
Grill at 180° for 20 minutes.
