National Braai Day


It's Heritage Day tomorrow, which means National Braai Day! So regardless of the weather, you have to dig out your braai tongs and tuck into some of these delicious braai favourites.

Braaied yellowtail

Ingredients:
1.5kg fresh yellowtail
Butter
Garlic
Parsley
Lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Method:
1. In a jug, melt the butter and add the garlic, chopped parsley, lemon and salt and pepper to taste.
2. Place the fish on a large piece of tinfoil, which has been doubled up.
3. Place the fish skin side down on the tinfoil and brush the fish all over with some of the butter mixture.
4. Place the tinfoil on top of the grid and cook on medium coals for about 45 minutes. You should be able to see the fish cooking through from the bottom. Remember to keep basting the fish as it cooks to avoid it drying out and to help it keep its flavour.
