– RECIPE –
Aunty Sarah's Snoek
4-6 Snoek portions (Fish With A Story)
1 tbsp olive oil
5 tbsp Suurvygie Jam
zest & juice of 1 lemon
salt & pepper
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Line a baking tray with grease-proof paper. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Pop the fillets onto the tray and season well.
Mix the jam with the lemon and stir well. Brush half over the fish and bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes until fish flakes.
Drizzle over the remaining jam and lemon, and serve with rice and salad.
TIP: This recipe is also so easy peasy for the braai. Use either on fillets or a side of snoek, and cook until caramelised (about 8-10 minutes).
