Barbecued Herrings with Lemon

Diet.Chef's picture
  Herrings 4 , cleaned
  Bay leaves 4
  Salt To Taste
  Lemon 1 , sliced
  Unsalted butter 1 3⁄4 Ounce (50 Gram)
  Chopped parsley 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Crusty bread 1 (To Serve)

1. Season the prepared herrings inside and out with freshly ground salt to taste.
2. Place a bay leaf inside the cavity of each fish.
3. Place 4 squares of kitchen foil on the work surface and divide the lemon slices evenly among them. Place a fish on top of the lemon slices.
4. Beat the butter until softened, then mix in the parsley and lemon pepper. Dot the flavoured butter liberally all over the fish.
5. Wrap the fish tightly in the kitchen foil and barbecue (grill) over medium hot coals for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through - the flesh should be white in colour and firm to the touch (unwrap the foil to check, then wrap up the fish again).
6. Transfer the wrapped fish parcels to individual, warm serving plates.
7. Unwrap the foil parcels just before serving and serve the fish with fresh, crusty bread to mop up the deliriously flavoured cooking juices.
