Grilled Snapper with Chilly, Coriander and Lime Dressing



When I arrived to Australia (20 years ago), I realised I will have to learn how to cook fish and seafood. Being born on continent, far away from sea, I didn't eat a lot of fish (except river fish, occasionally) and didn't know much about other edible sea creatures. It all changed last few years...I'm in love with seafood now!
Snapper is one of most appreciated fish here. I like to prepare it whole, either barbecued, baked or steamed and then add flavours in form of fresh herbs, oils and (citrus') juices.

Ingredients:
2 medium snappers
oil, salt and pepper
Dressing-
2-3 tbs olive (or other) oil
1 lime, zest and juice
4-5 tbs chopped coriander
1/2 red (mild) chilly, chopped
1 small garlic clove, crushed (optional)
salt and pepper  to taste

Method:
Preheat your grill / bbq. Make slits on thickest parts of fish. Season and brush with oil. Grill each side of fish for 6-10 minutes, depending on size. Turn once only. (Fish basket or al-foil strips wrapped around head and tail of fish will help handling). Place onto serving plate. Mix all ingredients for dressing and pour over the fish. Enjoy!



Grilovani Zubatac sa Korijanderom, Čilijem i Limetom

Kad' sam stigla u Australiju (prije 20 godina), shvatila sam da cu morati nauciti kako da spremim ribu i morske plodove. Obzirom da sam rodjena na kontinentu, daleko od mora, riba mi nije cesto bila na meniju (osim rijecne ribe, povremeno) i nisam mnogo znala o drugim jestivim morskim bicima. Sve se to promijenilo zadnjih nekoliko godina...Sad' mnogo volim morske plodove!
Zubatac je jedna od najcjenjenijih riba ovdje. Volim da je pripremim cijelu; bilo na rostilju (grilu), u rerni ili kuhanu na pari, i onda dodam svjeze zacinsko bilje, ulje i sokove (citrusa).

Potrebno:
2 zubatca, srednje velicine
ulje, so i biber
Preliv-
2-3 K maslinovog (ili drugog) ulja
1 limeta, sok i ribana korica
4-5 K sjeckanog koriandera (lisce)
1/2 crvene papricice, sjeckane
1 manje ceno bijelog luka, protisnuto (opciono)
so i biber, prema ukusu

Nacin:
Zagrijte gril / rostilj. Zasijecite ribu na najdebljim dijelovima; posolite i pobiberite. Natrljajte uljem. Pecite oko 6-10 minuta svaku stranu, okrecuci jednom (Mreza za ribu ili al-folija oko glave i repa ribe ce pomoci u okretanju). Smjestite ribu na posudu ukojoj cete servirati. Pomijesajte sve sastojke za preliv i pospite po ribi. Uzivajte!

  7. Fantastično izgleda, još samo fali miris mora i zvuk cvrčaka u predvečerje u nekom turističkom mjestu :)
    Ako će te utješiti, živim na moru i sa ribom sam na vi, pogotovo s ovim većima - njihovu pripremu uvijek prepustim suprugu!

  10. Najviše volim zubatca jesti na moru, pečenega na roštilju na vatri od maslinovog drveča. Tvoj izgleda predivno. :-)
