Something Fishy on the Barbie

Last week, Jonty & I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather, so we decided to have ourselves a little barbeque. We bought some fresh haddock fillets, put them on parchment paper then aluminum foil, drizzled them with olive oil and lemon juice, and topped them with lemon slices and rosemary.

 Then we wrapped them up and stuck them straight on top of the coals in the barbeque, and then covered them with more hot coals. They cooked for about 15 minutes.

We took the coals off, unwrapped our package, and BAM! we had delicious, firm, juicy fish. We served it with a green salad and homemade potato salad. (Someday I may share our amazing potato salad recipe if you're extra nice.)

Next step: Enjoy! Try this recipe out yourself; it's fantastic!

[Thanks to a Sainsbury's fish counter handout for some of the tips.]

Coming up this week: a giveaway, another Kenya post, & more!



  1. wow the fish looks like it would be delicious! i have never tried cooking fish, im convinced i will mess it up... but you made it look pretty easy, maybe i will give it a shot this week!

  2. You should definitely try it - it's pretty easy! It's done cooking when it falls apart a little when you cut it with the edge of a fork. Link back and tell me how it went!


I love comments almost as much as I love coffee. And both keep me going! <3
