Poisson a la Braise
- OK. Another recipe. This one is really from Diana Sacramento and I
submitted it to "Aquanews" a publication of the Pond
Dynamics/Aquaculture CRSP which funds aquaculture research in
developing countries. Go to page 8 of this document to see it in
Poisson a la Braise (Grilled Fish)
2 whole tilapia, cleaned, head on
1/2 onion, chopped
2 T tomato paste
1 T piment (hot pepper sauce)
1/2 cup egetable oil
1 stalk lemon grass, chopped
Cut slits diagonally on both sides of the fish. Rub with salt.
Squeeze lemon over and inside the fish. Place pieces of lemon grass
in the slits.
combine onion, piment, tomato paste and oil
Brush the sauce mixture over the fish and place fish on the grill.
Grill the fish onone side, brushing occasionally with the mixture.
Turn once to grill other side. Remove from grill when flesh flakes
with a fork.
Serve with beer and a baguette.
We will make this for our Sunday dinner at the Summer Fete 2008 that
I'm hosting on St. Croix. Anyone interested will also get to tour the
UVI Aquaculture Facilities where I work and see a more intensive form
of aquaculture than the pond culture we worked with in Gabon.
I know of one other Fisheries volunteer who is still involved in
aquaculture. Anyone else?
