Recipe Source:


Fresh yellowtail, butterflied and cleaned
2 lemons
1 cup butter softened
salt and black pepper to season
handful of parsley, finely chopped
handful of chives, chopped fine
handful of dill, chopped fine

  1. Open the butterflied fish and rest it skin down on the foil. Add the juice of one lemon to the melted butter.
  2. Season with salt and black pepper and brush half the lemon butter over the fish.
  3. Arrange the fish on a roster/grid – it’s just so much easier to handle on a hot braai.
  4. Cook on a hot grill (skin down) for about 10 minutes until the fish is hot right through. By now you can test if the fish is done by gently lifting the flesh with a fork. If it flakes – it’s done.
  5. Add the chopped herbs to the remaining butter and brush over the hot fish, drizzle with more fresh lemon juice from the other lemon, season, remove from heat and serve with your choice of sides.
