In Ghana, grilling food is mainly done using charcoal which renders the most delicious and smoky dishes. Lately, gas grills are taking over for much environmentally friendly cooking. When one thinks grilling, the first option is always, fish. But in absence of fish due to its seasonal shortage, pork or beef follows in the options box. We love fish and seafood in Ghana, and it makes up to 70 percent of our daily meals on the norm.
So, if you’re a fish lover, then you’ll love our foods more. Be bold with the spices and extra kick. Hope you enjoy grilling this spicy fish.
You will need:
2 fresh seabass
60 g fresh ginger
5 whole cloves
1 medium-size onion
2 teaspoon chilli powder or paprika powder
½ cup of vegetable oil
Salt to taste
How to make Spicy Grilled Fish:
Prepare fish by cutting the fins/tail off and descaling them. Also, remove any unprocessed waste from the gut.
Pat dry the fish and set aside.
Make a marinade by blending all other elements together into a thick paste. Check salt.
Rub the marinade into fish making sure to cover all parts.
Allow marinating for 15 mins at room temperature.
Heat up grill and grill fishes about 10 minutes on both sides or until cooked, but not more than 30 minutes and of course depending on the sizes of the fish.
Enjoy with some fried yam, banku, or with some cold salad. #katsfoods
