Snoek and summer peaches with herb remoulade

Beautiful braaied peaches pair perfectly with sweet, smoky snoek in this recipe. It comes to us from Food & Home Entertaining's 'A year of Seasonal Dishes', featuring wonderful ideas for using fresh, in season fruit and veg.


1 egg
12,5 ml dijon mustard
2,5ml (½ tsp) finely chopped garlic
200 ml canola oil
30ml (2 tbsp) white wine vinegar
30g chopped spring onion
25ml fresh, chopped flat-leaf parsley
45ml chopped dill gherkins
1 chopped hard-boiled egg
70g double-thick Greek yoghurt
Tabasco, to taste salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 medium butterflied snoek
6 halved dessert peaches
melted butter, for brushing
50ml maple syrup


Light a charcoal fire and allow to burn to coals.

For the remoulade, place the egg, mustard and garlic in a bowl and add the oil in three batches, whisking continuously. Stir in the vinegar. You should have a thick mayonnaise. Stir in the spring onions, parsley, dill gherkin, hard-boiled egg and yoghurt. Season generously with Tabasco, salt and pepper.

Brush the fish and peaches with melted butter. Grill the fish over the hot coals, about 12 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the fish.

Grill the peaches until just soft, 7 – 8 minutes on each side. Glaze the peaches with the maple syrup and allow to cook for a further 2 - 3 minutes over the coals to caramelise and char slightly.

Top the grilled fish with the peaches and serve with the herb remoulade.
