    Something else. It's winter and I did not want to bbq so I made the lemon juice mixture omitting the bay leaf, placed fish on piece of foil. Drizzled the marinade over the fish then basted the top with lemon pesto and gathered the foil loosely. Baked at 220 for 15 minutes. Delicious!  -  15 Sep 2008


    So simple, so awesome. Okay, my tiny "tweak" was only to throw in a couple chilli peppers, because I had them left over-- and it gave it a lovely zing, without detracting from the flavours. I barbecue year-round; minus 30 and a blizzard is no excuse to resort to the stove, y'all.  -  10 Nov 2014


    Happy to be the first to review this one. Fantastic!!!! I had a beautiful thick fillet and barbecued it. The flavour of the fish was not overpowered by the marinade. Super yummy..  -  15 Sep 2008
