Awesome Baste for Fish and Recipe

I used a slight alteration to my normal baste for doing yellowtail last week:
Here is my recipe:
1. I fillet the fish and then remove the flesh from the skin.
2. Cut away all brown/ black meat (I hate the taste of it so it is reserved for my cats and dogs)
3. Cut the thicker portions down to one about 2 cm thick and place side by side in grid for braai (hot coal roast)
4. baste generously with this baste:
  • 100 mL butter melted
  • add 1 teastpoon Roberstons fish spice
  • add 60 mL Kikkoman Soy Sauce (salty one)
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1 heaped teaspoon crushed garlic
5. remove a smoky stick from the fire and blow out the flames - now place the fish in the grid over this smoky stick for about 5 -10 minutes each side - You may need to rekindle the stick to keep it smoking. This must not cook the flesh - just add smoke . You can use a few coals and add damp oak sawdust if in doubt what stick to use.

6. Cook the fish over moderate heat for about 20-30 min baste - expose each side twice basting before hand.

7. Enjoy with lemon splashed over the fish.

Tip: leave out sugar, honey etc. unless you cook at lower heat or it will char.
