Happy BBQ Sea Bream

I'm calling this recipe the Happy Fish recipe,because the fish look so darn happy to be barbecued. They're smiling, can't you see, because they know they're going to be dam tasty. This recipe needs to be posted today, as the weather is such a wash out outside, I need to create some sunshine in my day. So here is a recipe we made during sunnier days. I just know, that its sunny somewhere today in the world, and someone reading this will have the opportunity to whack on the BBQ today, and make some sea breams happy!!!

So.... some BBQ fish and a cold glass of Savignon Blanc, what more could a girl ask for, or as the case may be today for me......wish for!

Serves 4

  • 2 large seam beams, washed,scaled and gutted.
  • Large handful of herbs (dill, thyme and parsley is what I'm using)
  • 1 garlic clove, cut into slivers
  • Lemon, sliced into thin slices
  • Sea salt & black pepper


  1. Heat up the BBQ
  2. Season the inside and outside of the fish well
  3. Cut deep slits (but not all the way through) in both sides of the fish
  4. Stuff the cavity with the chopped herbs
  5. Stuff the slits with the chopped herbs, garlic and lemon slices.
  6. Grilled on the BBQ, for 7 minutes each side. Don't turn them prematurely as the skins will stick to the rack.
  7. This is best served with BBQ veggies & Baked potatoes and a cool refreshing glass of vino.

worked very very well. The timing is just right, on a LOW heat.

Trying it tonight thought about placing fish in a bed of pok choi steamed with a oyster sauce dressing

The grilled fish looks delicious, thanks to the author for making the production method so detailed, I have to give it a try on the weekend.
