A taste of the good life
In this article, we will be looking at how to grill fish and not just grill fish but grill fish the Caribbean way. Now there are many ways in which fish can be prepared or grilled but what I want to share with you is how we grill here on the island.
I never ate grilled fish up until a few years ago when my church had a function for the men fellowship. As we came together to eat, fellowship and talk about men stuff, what I did was go over where all of that nice grilling was taking place.
I can still remember that night, it was a beautiful Friday night the weather was calm and the fellowship was just so wonderful.
Interesting enough some of the ladies came after a while, I guess they could not resist the thought of not being able to taste some of that fine food, talk about party crashers. Anyway on to how to grill fish the Carribean way
How to grill fish
I watch as those brothers worked their stuff and to tell you the truth it was pretty amazing and pretty simple to make. Here in the Bahamas some of the fish that is found in Bahamian water’s and that is really delicious are Snappers, the Nassau Grouper, Margaret Fish, Grants, Jackfish etc… These are just a few that the islanders enjoy.That night we grilled Snappers.
How to prepare
What you will need is a lime or lemons according to the number of fish that you are planning to grill, celery, sweet or bell pepper, onion, hot pepper, salt, black pepper (carrots and plantain is optional) but adding these is good also, butter (thyme or rosemary is also optional) but these will work wonders and will really have your mouth watering.
Let the fun begin
Make sure fish is clean, season fish with a sprinkle of black and salt on both sides, at this time if you prefer you can use a small hot pepper, crush and spread on both sides of fish next tear a piece of foil that is large enough to cover fish
then cut up your herbs, the onion, celery and bell pepper next spread foil out and with a tablespoon of butter spread on foil, then what you will do next is place herbs on foil and lay fish on top of herbs, then if you prefer you can add either a few leaves of thyme or rosemary on top of fish. Cut lime in half and squeeze over fish then close fish in foil wrap and place on the grill.
Allow fish to cook for 10-2o minutes some fish may take a shorter or longer time, depending on the size of the fish and the thickness. Be very careful not to burn your hand as you remove fish from the grill. Open foil and season with pepper and salt if it needs more season. There you have it a juicy mouth watering grill fish.
As you sit back and eat try not to bite your fingers off because grill fish is really delicious and will have you wanting more.
