  • Place the dill parsley and coriander into the cavity of the fish then season well with salt and pepper. Add the lemon wedges.
  • Place on a double layer of foil, drizzle with a little oil, and then seal the ends well.
  • Once sealed, pour in the wine and seal the top a bit like a Cornish pasty.
  • Place directly on the pre heated bar b q, or into a pre heated oven 200C gas 6.
  • Do not overcook the fish, so I would recommend you check to see if cooked after 10 minutes. You will hear a bubbling from the packet.
  • Meanwhile, place prepared fruits into a bowl and then add the rest of the ingredients and mix really well.
  • Add salt and plenty of pepper.
  • Once the fish is cooked, carefully lift onto a board, open.
  • Pour some of the juices into the salad and again mix well. 
  • When ready to serve, spoon the fruit salad over the fish.
  • Gently tap the pomegranate and tear open the skin.
  • Sprinkle a few seeds over the fish and serve.
  • I tend to remove the fish from the grill or oven when the fish ¾’s cooked and leave to finish cooking in the residual heat. This way you don’t overcook.
  • Serve.

* Nam Pla is a Thai fish sauce you can try using Worcestershire sauce if you are finding it hard to find.
