Meaty game fish are perfect for marinating in citrus, salt, pepper and olive oil then barbecuing.

  • Whole portion sized fish such as Snappers, Sea Bass are also great, as are whole King Prawns and Lobsters.
  • The coals need to be glowing red under a layer of ash otherwise the fish will cook too quickly
  • Skin on oily fish lend themselves perfectly to this form of cooking
  • Prawns and firm white fish fillets work if marinated in an oil rich marinade. These need to be basted regularly
  • Do not slash the skin as it protects the fish


  • Make sure the Barbecue is not too hot
  • Baste the seafood regularly
  • Keep the skin on the fish.
