Barbecued Marinated Croaker fish Recipe On Street Foodie Waka

At a recent family gathering, I got to savor one of the tastiest fish barbecues ever. This was prepared by Sunday, a pro in the fish barbecue business. I found myself going back for One……..Two……….Three helpings of whole fish. Call it gluttony, but if you ask me I’d say the fish was “fantabulously gooooood!!!” . It was spicy, hot & full of flavor. I first got drawn to his barbecue stand by the aroma and after a little chitchat; he was kind enough to show me how it’s being prepared. Let’s take a look below

• Prep time:    40 mins
• Cook Time: 12 mins
• Total time:   52 mins
• Street foodie waka chef: Sunday

Ingredients:::
• 3 Whole Croaker Fish
• 3 tbsp. freshly ground Red Chili pepper 
• 1 tbsp. freshly ground Black pepper 
• 2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil 
• 5 cloves Garlic,minced
• 1 tsp. Salt to taste

Directions:::
1. Preheat the barbecue grill 30 mins prior to cook time.

2. Remove the scales from the fish and gut; Wash thoroughly

3. Place the fish in an aluminum foil and make about 6 slashes on each fish with a sharp knife (This is to help the seasoning penetrate into the fish easily)

4. Mix the peppers in a bowl, Add the chopped onion, Minced garlic, Salt and 3 tbsp. vegetable oil; Stir to incorporate the mixture together

5. Rub the pepper mixture all over the fish with a brush and cover with the aluminum foil; Leave to marinate for 30 mins (While the barbecue grill heats up)

6. Place the fish on the barbecue grill in the fish holder and leave to cook for 6 mins on each side.

7. Garnish with salad and serve.

  5. Seeing that I am a girl from the Lake Victoria region of Kenya, I have a very strong affinity for fish! And Dobby, you get a stamp of “Lake Victoria” approval for this, because it definitely looks too good.

    I love that it’s simple and has a good amount of chilli in there for a kick. We are bbqing fish tomorrow at the house, and I may throw in this recipe instead to my mom.

    Thanks m’dear! Hope you are well

    1. Hi Mrs morgan,
      Using a Microwave to Grill is a total No No (Except you are using a conventional Microwave/ grill, though it still won't have the same effect as when you Use a Real Grill). This is because Grilling and microwaving are two different cooking techniques. When Grilling, Radiant heat (above 400 degrees F)is applied to whatever is being cooked while Microwaves do not apply radiant heat to foods. Also, Grilling concentrates the fish flavours, colour & texture while microwaved fish wouldn't do that and you might end up with a bland fish. Hope this Helps.

    1. Hi mrs morgan,
      An oven toaster & grill can be used to Barbecue,grill,Bake and also reheat meals. The only hitch is, it's not as fast as the normal oven.

    Dobby pls can I use cat fish for babique

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yes you can. But you'd also need to use a foil to wrap the cat fish before cooking. That way, the catfish wouldn't scatter while it cooks.

    1. Fresh chili pepper is sold everywhere especially in the local markets. If you live in lagos it's known as "Shombo". Black pepper could also be gotten in the local and super markets pre-packaged.
