Coral Trout cooked in paperbark with lemon myrtle

Category

I still remember this BBQ, it was with friends at Coolum on the Sunshine Coast, Qld. A great day and a fantastic gathering, we pretty much added whatever vegetables we wanted and piled it all into the paperbark and then onto the BBQ, after that it was drinks all round and lots of talking.

Preparing the fish

 Whole fish
 1 Desert spoon of Lemon Myrtle
 Lemon Pepper Bush BBQ Rub
 Vegetable assortment

1

Take one Coral Trout or any fish that you fancy

2

Stuff fish with Vegetables, whatever you like, zucchini, mushroom, pumpkin, onion, carrot, etc

3

sprinkle with mountain pepper, murray river salt and lemon myrtle to taste, you could also use aniseed myrtle here instead of lemon myrtle, this herb goes fantastically well with any seafood. I usually use of good sprinkling. For this fish I used a heaped dessertspoon of lemon myrtle.

4

Now peel some paperbark of a paper bark tree, wash it and soak for about 5 minutes in water, use wet, then wrap fish in it...

5

I also wrap it all in foil, as it not only keeps the paperbark in place, but also stops coals and stuff getting into the food.

6

The paperbark gives a lovely smokey flavour. Onto to the BBQ for about 40 minutes, check after 30 minutes, just depending on the heat of your fire and also the size of the fish, little pieces or smaller fish obviously take less time ...now it's time to sit down, enjoy a drink....and have fun
