Isabella’s yellowtail with soy and garlic sauce
Isabella Niehaus of Langebaan on the West Coast is a dab hand at cooking fish. Here’s one of her outstanding recipes.
SERVES 6 Preparation
5 min Marinating
1 hour Cooking 12-15 min (fish) 5 min (sauce)
2 whole garlic bulbs
250 ml (1 c) lemon juice
250 ml (1 c) soy sauce
250 ml (1 c) olive oil
1 yellowtail, cleaned and butterflied
1 Marinade Grate the garlic bulbs on the coarse side of the grater – the skin will stay behind. Mix with the rest of the marinade ingredients.
2 Fish Pour the marinade over the fish and marinate for 1 hour.
3 Transfer the fish to a folding braai grid and braai, skin side down, for 10-12 minutes or until the flesh just turns white. Brush often with the marinade. Turn and braai the fleshy side for 2-3 seconds or until just browned.
4 Reduce the leftover marinade in a saucepan until fragrant and serve with the fish.
