Stephen Mandes’ signature vegetable marinated snoek

We sought the help of local chef and braai king Stephen Mandes for the best snoek recipe, and he developed this vegetable marinated snoek for summer!

SERVES 6 // COOKING TIME 1 hour 30 min

2 green peppers
2 green chillies
1 onion
3 garlic cloves
3 tsp salt
2½ tsp sugar
2 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 snoek (about 2.5 kg)

1. Add all the ingredients, except the snoek, to a food processor and blend until you get a pulp.
2. Lay the snoek in a baking tray and pour over the marinade, making sure the fish is fully coated. Allow to marinate for 1 hour.
3. Secure the snoek in a well-greased fish grid and braai over hot coals for 15–20 minutes, until the skin is crispy and the flesh is flaky and cooked through.
