Wash the larger outer leaves of the lettuces and dry well. Reserve the smaller
leaves for garnish.
Take 3 or 4 lettuce leaves (depending on how large they are) and spread open.
Place a fish steak with as much of the marinade adhering to it, and place on the
leaves. Tie into a parcel with kitchen string.
Repeat with the remaining lettuce and fish so you have 4 parcels.
Grill over hot coals for about 10 minutes on each side, depending on the
