Recipe for Grilled Harders with spiced paprika butter and lemon
6 fresh harders, gilled & gutted & scaled
125 ml butter, melted
10 ml smoked paprika
5 ml chilli flakes
2 cloves garlic, finely grated
juice of a lemon (plus extra lemon wedges, to serve)
salt & pepper to taste
Rinse the harders under running tap water and pat dry.
Use a sharp knife to score the skin on the fillet sides.
Mix the melted butter, paprika, chilli flakes, garlic and lemon juice. Season generously with salt & pepper.
Brush the butter mixture all over the harders, then braai them on a grid over medium-hot coals (turning often) for 8-10 minutes or until just cooked. Baste with the butter often.
