  4. Fire up the BBQ hot plate ensuring its sizzling hot
  5. Place the fish on lightly greased hot plate for about 15 – 20 minutes turning at least once
    – keep a close eye on the fish as you don’t want it to stick to the hot plate and burn
    – If its sticking turn the direct heat down or move the fish away from the flame
    Note: you can also opt to wrap the fish in foil and indirect bake
  6. continuously brush the fish with the marinade as its cooking to drive additional flavour into the dish and serve with some BBQ Citrus Wedges.

you will know the fish is ready when you can separate the flesh of the fish easily with a fork (the flesh should be opaque

Trust me this will be a go to fish dish in the future as its awesome.
