CARAMELISED GRILLED FISH
Marinade 2 filets of fish of your choice in:
2 tsps Soy Sauce, 1 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp of palm or white sugar, 1tsp fish sauce (Optional)
Chopped herbs like parsley and coriander
half tsp Red Wine Vinegar (optional)
Grill the fish on high heat in olive oil while pressing it down on the pan. The red wine vinegar and sugar give the fish and beautiful bronzed crunchy covering. Pressing the fish down further helps caramelised the sugar in the fish and gives it a dark coat. This fish is sour, sweet and hot- a combination that works extremely well. Serve.
