Like snoek, yellowtail is a predator with a coarse texture. It goes well with stronger flavours.

Serves 2

Preparation time: 10 min

Cooking time: 10-15 min


160 ml coconut milk

160 ml plain yoghurt

rind and juice of 1 lemon

1 red chilli, seeded and chopped

10 ml (2 t) garam masala or roasted curry powder

5 ml (1 t) ground cumin

2 ml (½ t) turmeric

1 small onion, finely chopped

30 ml (2 T) fresh ginger, grated

4 cloves garlic, crushed


2 portions (180 g each) yellowtail or dorado

salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 220 °C.


Mix all ingredients except the fish, salt and pepper. Place the fish portions in a non-metallic bowl, pour over the marinade ingredients and marinate for at least 15-20 minutes.


Place a lightly oiled oven pan or baking sheet in the oven for 5 minutes. Arrange the fish portions in the hot oven pan or on the baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper. Pour over the marinade and grill for 8-10 minutes until just done.


Serve the fish hot with mashed potato and cucumber and onion sambal.
