Grilled Herring Fish


Hello Corn, you are still the champ- I promise; Fish is just a side chick, don’t you worry. At this point, I think it won’t be fair of me not to confess that I have been cheating on corn.

Even as I have professed my undying love to corn, I have still been eating fish more than four times a week. It is easy and quick to make; very affordable and super flavourful.

With due sincere apologies, I think Fish deserves to be celebrated head on… So, here’s to  fish- Thanks for being a great source of protein.

I prefer to grill my fish than boil or fry. I like the taste better, and it sure is healthy! My favourite Cameroon black pepper is partnering in this! Join me, enjoy this savory delicacy… Oh lalala… Oh lalala a…

Step 1


Clean fish interior through the opening at the head. You can also make a thin slice at the side for an assured thorough clean out.


Rinse well and pat dry with a kitchen towel, or allow to drain in a strain. Then arrange them in the foil-covered oven tray.

Step 2


Preheat oven at 250C.

Mixed all the other ingredients and apply all over the fishes- front, back and interior with a brush. Leave in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. This makes the fish marinate properly.

Step 3

Cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Serve as desired.
