CapeCook - Rustic  South African Food


6 fat harders, de-scaled and gutted

Juice of 1 fresh lemon

Vine leaves in brine


Black pepper


Rinse the vine leaves in fresh water. Salt and pepper the fish inside and outside and pour the lemon juice over the fish. Wrap the fish in the vine leaves, so that only their heads and tails are visible.

Put the fish in a basket type grid and braai over moderate coals, the leaves will dry out because of the heat of the coals, but the flesh of the fish will stay nice and moist. Turn the fish a couple of times, depending on the heat of your coals it will take between 10 and 15 minutes for the fish to cook.
