Ina’s Tip

Our Pesto’s keep exceptionally well in the fridge once opened (up to 2 weeks). Just squeeze out the air, fold over the cut corner of the pack and secure it with a clip or peg, they also freeze very well.


Season fish with the Seasoned Sea Salt. Cover with cling film and place an ice brick on top. Leave in the fridge to firm up for 20-30 minutes. This makes the fish less likely to fall apart during cooking.
Mix garlic, chilli, curry powder, oil, Tomato Pesto and Coriander Pesto to form a paste. Separate the onion wedges into leaves. Cut peppers into 3cm squares and fish into 4 cm diamond shapes. Toss fish with curry paste to coat it on all sides.
Thread alternating cubes of fish, onion and peppers onto kebab sticks. Insert a second kebab stick to stabilise kebabs when turning them.
Cook under a hot grill or on the braai, turning occasionally, until browned.
Serve with sliced lime or lemon, Lentil Rice with Coriander and a Cucumber Salad Sambal.
