Most fish lovers know about the apricot jam and butter recipe for snoek! I just thought i'd share my twist on the this famous recipe!

Take small pot and heat up stove to max!

Melt +- 1/4of a blok of butter in the pot( this is for a fish enough to feed 4)

Add about half of a small bottle of lemon juice

When mixture is almost boiling add about 5 table spoons of garlic

Then comes the famous apricot jam, about half of a small tin!

As this starts to boil add about 1 table spoon of mixed herbs, 1 table spoon of Italian cheese spice and 1/2 table spoon of marjoram.

Then the trick to this recipe is to boil all of this together until the jam starts to caramelize and turn light brown! But take care not to burn the sauce or you will be scrubbing that pot for a week!

With your snoek already lying open on the foil, just sprinkle some salt and then take the still hot sauce and spread all of it over the inside of the snoek!

Close the fish and wrap it tightly with the foil! Now just 'gooi' it on the braai and leave it on for +-10min on each side!

All you need now is your wife's best salad and some cold beers or some of Mr Sedgwicks OBS

Hope some of you will enjoy this method!( this also tastes good with rockcod)

Happy days and::tight:

(if this has already been done, sorry i though it was the Jamie Oliver coming out in me! HA-HA)
