Grilled Fish on Skewers

READY IN: 2hrs 25mins
Recipe by -Sylvie-

This recipe comes from a Moroccan cookbook that I once found in a bargain book shop. You can either use the grill on your oven or BBQ them. They are really tasty and served with green salad they make a light meal. The coriander in this recipe refers to fresh leaves/cilantro, not the seeds. The preparation time includes time for marinating, otherwise it would only be about 15 minutes.

Made these up for ZWT II, I marinated some mushroom caps with the fish, parboiled some yams with pineapple juice, then cut up a wonderfully ripe pineapple. Set everything out and let people make up their own skewers to BBQ on the grill. This made a great dinner for a pool party with friends. Unfortunately, the pics I took were useless as I forgot to put the darned memory card back in the camera. But want to thank you for a wonderful recipe anyway.

  3. Leave to marinate for at least two hours, stirring from time to time.
  4. Divide the fish onto four skewers. (Tip: If you use bamboo ones soak them in water beforehand to stop them from burning).
