Instructions

This is our new favourite way to grill fish fillets. Rolling the fillets into a pinwheel increases the thickness of the fish, so you can cook the fish longer on each side, resulting in deep caramelised grill marks. The fish releases easily from the grill, there’s less risk of overcooking plus the fish stays juicer. Customise the flavours
