  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 whole pickerel cleaned (about 2 lb/1 kg)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Cherry Tomato Relish:
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups quartered cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 jalapeño pepper seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon drated or minced gingerroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

Cherry Tomato Relish: In small skillet, lightly toast ground coriander and pepper over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes; transfer to bowl.

Add cherry tomatoes, fresh coriander, jalapeño pepper, onion, oil, lime rind and juice, ginger and salt; toss well to combine. Set aside. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 8 hours; bring to room temperature before serving.)

Cut 2 diagonal slashes into each side of fish. Sprinkle inside and out with salt and pepper. Place in greased fish basket or on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and cook for 10 minutes. Turn basket, or loosen fish with spatula and, using spatulas over and under fish, turn over. Cook until fish flakes easily when tested, about 15 minutes. Serve with relish.
