Parsley Grilled Pomfret

Take a bowl full of finely chopped Parsley, one garlic bulb, lemon zest and lemon juice, salt and pepper. Use olive oil to combine them together.

Rub this all over a fish. Keep fish on an oiled grill tray. Below it keep a tray with foil wrap. This helps in clean up. If you have them, chop up sweet potatoes into thick fingers and place them here as well.

Into a preheated oven at 180 C for thirty minutes. The size of the Fish determines the time. The Pomfret used here weighed about 700 gms.

The easiest way to check if the fish is ready, is to check the oil drops forming underneath. If they are clear and transparent, it’s cooked. Additionally also touch the fish. It should be breaking away from the bones without any resistance. Do not over cook fish.

Once these two conditions are met, remove the fish from the oven and let it rest for at least ten minutes.

Enjoy the fight that erupts between your family of humans and cats.
