1. Season the insides of the fish with salt then make 2-3 shallow diagonal
cuts on both sides of each fish.

small bowl, mix together the lime juice, zest and sliced chilli then rub this
mixture into the fish, both inside and out.
Place the fish in a shallow dish then scatter the coriander over the top and
cover with the slices of lime. Refrigerate and leave to marinate for one hour.
Remove the fish from the dish and brush liberally with olive oil. Place oiled
side down on an oiled hinged wire fish basket * and cook over medium coals for 3-4
Brush the other side of the fish with olive oil, turn and continue to cook for a
further 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately.
If you don't have a wire fish grill, use 2 long skewers to impale all the
fish together, one skewer going through the fish just below the heads, the other
going through the fish just above the tails.
