This dish was my Christmas holiday prize achievement. We were able to buy ocean fresh cob straight off the boat in Stilbaai. What a treat.

Ina's Tip

Oven Method

Bake for 10 – 13 minutes in a preheated 200°C oven on the middle shelf. Test for doneness as explained above.


Prepare medium coals in a kettle braai.

Line an old baking tray with baking paper or foil.

Place the fish, skin side down, on the tray and season with Garlic Pepper or Lemon & Black Pepper Seasoning.

Cut open the pack of Peppers, drizzle the vinaigrette over the fish and sprinkle the Peppers and pipped olives over.

Drizzle generously with olive oil and dot with butter.

Place pan with fish on the grid, cover kettle braai with the lid and check for doneness after 10 minutes.

Use a fork and pull the fish apart on the thickest part. As soon as the flesh is white and flaky and no longer opaque and jellyish, the fish is done.


Garnish with chopped parsley.

Serve with Slow Roast Tomatoes and buttery jacket potatoes.
