Grilled fish with lemon and parsley
  • 1
    Preheat grill to very hot. Brush grill tray and fish with oil. Season fish, place on prepared tray and cook for 5 minutes under grill, about 10cm from heat, basting with lemon juice, without turning, until fish flakes easily.
  • 2
    Meanwhile make Lemon and Parsley Topping by mixing parsley, garlic and lemon rind together.
  • 3
    Pile steamed spinach onto serving plates and place fish on top. Sprinkle over Lemon and Parsley Topping and serve with lemon wedges.


The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fish. When it is ready, the flesh will be opaque and flake easily. Don't overcook fish, or it will dry out and lose its lovely natural sweetness.
