Grilled saithe with potatoes and sautéed vegetables by @Davidvkuchyni

Summer's not over yet - make use of the Indian summer on a weekend evening and get some of this great saithe on the barbecue.

  • Time of preparation:
    40 minutes
  • Take the saithe out of the freezer the night before and leave to gradually defrost in the fridge. Its taste and texture will then be like that of freshly caught fish.
