BUTTERY APRICOT JAM SNOEK RECIPE

BUTTERY APRICOT JAM SNOEK RECIPE

When summer arrives, so does the holiday season. It’s not ideal to spend the whole day in the kitchen preparing meals for a large gathering, so a seafood braai may be the perfect solution. Can you recall the first time your father topped long snoek with apricot jam and you anxiously awaited your first bite? Now you can feed the entire family a homemade snoek stuffed with creamy apricot jam.

BUTTERY APRICOT JAM SNOEK SUGGESTIONS

The snoek, or snake mackerel, is one of, if not the most sought-after fish in all of South Africa. It’s crumbly and has a lot of bones, so a folding grid will be necessary for the braai. If your coals are hot enough, the fish should only take around 7 minutes to fry on each side if you continue to baste it the whole time. The most stereotypical accompaniment to this meal is roasted sweet potatoes, which may be cooked in a single step by wrapping them in foil and placing them on the grill.

Don’t spend all day in the kitchen, and instead treat your loved ones to the most delicious seafood braai they’ve ever experienced. This recipe for buttery apricot jam snoek is both classic and delicious.
